Things to think about before the event to make this as fulfilling as possible (and to stave off any potential awkward pauses!):
What was your journey to becoming an information professional?
What is your favorite part about your job or about librarianship in general?
SLA 2012 is coming up — will you be attending? If you’ve gone before, can you think of any tips for people who will be going for the first time?
SLA President Brent Mai’s theme for 2012 is “Future Now: Operation Agility“. How do you “proactively anticipate and positively respond to the needs of [your organization]“? If being ready for the future now seems like a daunting task, how do you think SLA-SD can help you overcome these challenges?
What are your passions outside of the information arena? Sometimes we’ll find unexpected connections with our colleagues by sharing what we do outside of the workplace.
And don’t forget those business cards! It might also be helpful to bring a pen/notebook if inspiration happens to strike.
