Alumni Represent! at ALA

We know many of you will be heading out to Anaheim for some Disney and for some ALA! The UNCG LIS Department is having its shindig at the Cooperative Library and Information Studies Alumni Reunion on Sunday, June 24, 2012, 5.30 pm – 7.30 pm in the Disneyland Hotel, Magic Kingdom Ballroom. Look for Minerva (and maybe Minnie). If you can’t make the event, then stop by the ALISE/LIS Education Cooperative Booth in the Exhibits.  More info about both events is at: http://www.alise.org/alise—ala-2012#sharedbooth

Lynda will be giving out QR Code stickers for your nametag, so make sure you get one at the conference. They are the hottest things ever!

And if you are presenting at the conference (or want to promote something at the conference), reply to this post! We would love to hear what you are up to!

Are you going to Anaheim? Let’s us know!

who has the coolest LIS alumni association?

Yes, we do. Here they are. Hot off the presses. The UNCG LISAA sticker with QR code. You know you want to show your “G” pride at NCLA. Stop by the LISAA table to get one. Just look for the table with a very, very large sign, as big as a child, or two or three.

And don’t forget to meet at Carrabba’s Wednesday night at 5pm.

Say it loud, say it proud. We are G!

get yer party-hopping boots on!

Some librarians are going to rock Hickory during NCLA! And to get the festivities started the LIS Alumni Association is going to meet up at Carraba’s on Wednesday, October 5 from 5:00-7:00 pm. Carrabba’s told us that they don’t have a happy hour, and we said “Don’t worry. We will bring the happy.”  We know other events may compete but none will be as cool. Feel free to stop by and say hello to your fellow alumni as well as some recruited current students.

In addition to happy hour, the LISAA board will be live blogging the events as possible. If you would like to live blog for us on Minerva’s Library, email Lynda.
