Our program, with keynote speaker Miguel Figueroa, is called Telling Stories About the Future: Changes, Trends and Values. Miguel Figueroa works at the Center for the Future of Libraries, an initiative of the American Library Association, and is the author of its indispensable weekly newsletter, Read For Later.
Using the work of ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries, this interactive presentation will illuminate how thinking about the future begins with the study of change – looking outside of our immediate environments to consider the sustained trends happening in the wider world.
Please find registration and additional information at the Spring Membership Meeting information page.
For those who can’t join us in person, we’re also making the Business Meeting and Keynote available virtually, via Adobe Connect and Facebook Live, respectively.
Where: We’re returning to the beautiful Forsgate Country Club, so we can all be together for this event.
