I happily represented LCNV this Wednesday in Richmond during a meeting with the Virginia Literacy Leadership Council to plan for next year’s conference. The committee has members from community-based literacy organizations all over the state and has planned conferences to bring these non-profit literacy organizations an opportunity to network with colleagues and develop their staff. We talked about the logistics of executing this year’s conference and goals for this conference as well as what we’d like to do in the long-term. For this year, we are working towards creating a conference geared toward building infrastructure. We’re trying to reach for a wider range of presenters and build a reputation about the conference in the surrounding areas including Maryland and North Carolina. In future years, we’d also like to open conference registration up to volunteers and not just the staff of these organizations. There is even hope of video recording the workshops for posting online! If you have suggestions for the conference, especially for presenters or workshops, please let me know by emailing email@example.com. The better we represent your interests, the better we can share what we learn. I’ll be sure to share the progress of the conference in later posts!
