Surf Museum Tour Wrap up!

What a delightful time with colleagues! Our small group really got the most out of the tour and dinner gathering.  Our host and avid surfer, Kramer (pictured in the museum below), was full of knowledge and information to share about what it was like to surf with the greats!  He also gave us a wonderful walk through tour of the entire museum that serves as an international repository and resource center on the lifestyle sport of surfing. We viewed all the exhibits which included, Gems from the Vault, The Art of Kevin Short, A Brief History of Surfboards, and exhibits on both Bud Brown, Bethany Hamilton.  We were all amazed at the extent of the collection and the unique pieces that so many surfers have donated to the museum over the years.  Thanks for sharing in this wonderful event!

We are very excited to have arranged for a special group tour at the California Surf Museum on Monday, October 5th for our next SLA-SD Chapter program.

SLA Webinar with author, Bruce Rosenstein

Creating the Future for Information Professionals the Peter Drucker Way

rosenstein
Books by Peter Drucker (1909-2005), the “father of modern management,” have been a beacon for people in special libraries and organizations of all types for more than 70 years.
Join Bruce Rosenstein, Managing Editor of Leader to Leader, who interviewed Drucker extensively and is the author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way and Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker’s Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life; for an exploration of how you can apply Drucker’s insights to create the future for you, your organization and the profession.

Bruce’s presentation will be particularly relevant for developing strategies regarding the recent discussions on ‘the future of SLA’ and the disruption that special librarians have experienced:

Creating a future-focused mindset (Build a better tomorrow by taking steps today)
Determining the future that has already happened (Look for clues in the past to forecast the future)
Becoming your own successor (Keep yourself in demand and in control of your destiny)
Shaping the future of your organization (Go beyond the planning stage and create real change)Building your future beyond your current workplace (Identify key challenges & opportunities in all areas of life)
The future is too important to be left to chance; participate in this important event as you create your own future!

Bruce Rosenstein

Bruce Rosenstein is Managing Editor of Leader to Leader, and author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way (McGraw-Hill, 2013) and Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker’s Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life (Berrett-Koehler, 2009). He is an adjunct professor at The Catholic University of America’s Department of Library and Information Science, and was a reference librarian at USA TODAY for 21 years.

Check this Out! Attendees will also benefit from an introduction and overview of Safari Books Online (home to Rosenstein’s books in full-text) along with 44,000 other IT, business and professional development titles along with a free no-obligation 30-day trial.
