We missed you at the UNCG LIS Alumni Luncheon!

The UNCG LIS Alumni Luncheon was a wonderful success. We had a great turnout, yummy food, and an engaging speaker. Our speaker, Lauren Pressley, gave a thoughtful talk on the changing library. We also awarded the Bea Kovacs Award to Susan Sharpless Smith. More information coming soon about her!

Kovacs Award Winner is Susan Sharpless Smith

The only thing missing was you! Hope you can join us in 2012. We will announce the date for next year’s luncheon very soon. Keep an eye out for more information or join our listserv to find out more!

Breakfast of course!

We missed you all! We will be doing a brunch (or lunch or wine) at a city near you. Get in touch with Jennifer Smith or Lynda (on the Executive Board) if you are interested in hosting a brunch (or lunch, etc) in your own fair town. We have one more wonderful event on the schedule!
