Beyond Borders: An Evening with Kate Arnold

Please join the Oregon Chapter of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) for a stimulating evening with SLA’s President, Kate Arnold. Kate will share insights on librarians and information professionals she has gleaned over her first six months in office. Fresh from SLA/INFO-EXPO in Vancouver, she’ll bring us up-to-date on what happened at the conference, including updated competencies for information professionals.

Kate brings an international perspective to the world of information professionals. She’s currently the Information and Support Programme Lead at Macmillan Cancer Support in the U.K. and has traveled internationally in her positions as President-Elect and President of the international SLA.

We’ll meet at the beautifully renovated Architectural Heritage Center for Kate’s talk. Dinner will be catered by Pacific Pie Co. and we’ll have a variety of beverages for you to choose from.
