I’m already gearing up for the SLA NY Power Networking event on May 7th, and in the spirit of that event, here are some quick-fire reasons why I’m attending.
- I’m new to NYC, and I want to meet other librarians
- I’m new to NYC, and I want to meet other New Yorkers (Can I call myself that if I’ve only been here three months?)
- I’m a new library professional, and I’d like to meet both seasoned pros, and library students
- I like small talk
- I like networking
- I like appetizers
I also like that this event, although clearly professional in nature, seems like it will be a lot of fun. What better way to avoid awkwardly standing in a corner at an event than to be forced (encouraged?) to chat with a wide range of people in a short amount of time?
I hope to meet you there!
