From NLS: Discussion on the chairs responsibilities in selecting the Network Library of the Year award. NLS invited help from Chairs in promoting LOY submissions from their conference.
Conference Chair Questions and Discussion Points:
Midlands: When will NLS announce the conference site for the 2018 Biennial Conference?
Southern: Why doesn’t NLS make ALL the mailing containers clear from now on? It seems it would be cheaper to make only 1 color, and the clear ones are so practical because they eliminate the need to open containers to check what is inside.
Western: It would be interesting (and possibly useful for presenters) to know the expected number of attendees at the NLS Biennial in San Francisco for (1) the pre-conference and (2) the main conference. Also, it would be interesting to know when an updated agenda for the conference will become available.
