Round Tables and Dine Arounds

One of the things I like most about library conferences is meeting and chitchatting with others in between formal presentations. Adding food and/or coffee to mix is even better.

Today at the round table lunch we enjoyed both great conversation and food. The topics were: professional development, staff and services, technology, and research. A volunteer recorder at each table took minutes and discussed their work in a friendly and relaxed environment. I sat at the professional development table and, though we sometimes veered off-topic, I got some great ideas and advice from my colleagues. 

Attendees also had the opportunity to sign-up for dine arounds at the hospitality table. A few choice locales' lists filled up quickly, but it seemed everyone who wanted to participate had the opportunity to. I was part of the large group of attendees who went to The Royal Scam, a great restaurant just a few blocks away from the Battlehouse. We enjoyed great food while discussing the events of the day.
