Florida Library Association's New Performers' Showcase To Be Inaugurated At This Year's Annual Conference
My name is Cheryl Fishman and I am a children’s librarian in Boynton Beach, which is in South Palm Beach County. I have the pleasure of informing you about a new FLA Annual Conference event called the Performers’ Showcase. This event will take place at the conference on Wednesday, April 7th, 2010 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando.
The purpose of this showcase is to provide librarians who work with youth (children and teens) and/or adults a forum in which they can preview quality performers for library programs. This is an opportunity for librarians to get a “taste” of what a program may look like in their library before they decide to hire them.
The current committee needs your help in preparing and executing this brand new event. The FLA leadership and the Performers' Showcase Committee are looking to Youth Services Group Members to assist in the development and actual administration of the Performers’ Showcase. We are recruiting you to actively participate in this endeavor!
Your skills and expertise in selecting worthy performers are needed! Your knowledge of your local performers in your particular area is essential to our goal and to the success of this program. We are looking for members from various regions of the state (North, Central, South and West) to ensure geographic diversity and balance.
Please contact me via email or telephone no later than Friday, January 22nd, 2010 to let me know if you would like to be a member of this exciting new committee.
Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to hearing from you very soon. We hope to be working with you on this exciting new project!
