Mark Your Calendar: Plans are underway for the 2007 WLA Annual Conference in Green Bay

Outgoing WLA Conference Chair Bernie Bellin passed the baton to the new Conference Chair Terrie Howe and her planning committee for the 2007 Wisconsin Library Association Annual Conference. This much anticipated event, is scheduled to take place October 16 – 19, 2007, at the beautiful Regency Suites Hotel and KI Convention Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Committee members for the 2007 event include: Terrie Howe, of the Nicolet Federated Library System (NFLS); Alan Engelbert (Manitowoc Public Library); Brigitte Vacha (WLA); Paula Ganyard (UW-Green Bay IS); Elizabeth Timmins (Seymour Public Library); Felice Maciejewski (St. Norbert College); Glenice Klestinski (NFLS); Jamie Matczak (NFLS); Jan Peterson (AE, 3M Security Systems); Julie Fricke (Lawrence University); Maggie Waggoner (Kaukauna Public Library); Mark Merrifield (NFLS); Michael Kenney (Appleton Public Library); and Rita Schiesser (NFLS).

The committee will be busy in the months ahead, deciding on 2007’s theme and keynote speaker, not to mention the other key responsibilities in their charge, such as programming, luncheon speaker, the silent auction store, pre-conferences, special side tours, and so on. Needless to say, the bar has been set very high after our wonderful conference in the Dells. The committee loves the challenge!
