The Information Today blogging team is gearing up for the annual SLA conference, which this year is in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The exhibit hall opens on Sunday afternoon, the 5th of June, but business meetings and continuing education sessions will be going on before that. Speaking of business meetings, there’s a big change this year in the association’s annual business meeting — it’s in two parts. The first piece is Tuesday EVENING, from 5:15 to (probably) 6:15. And that’s when voting on bylaws amendments will take place. The amendments are a proposal to allow members to vote electronically and to align the SLA governance year with its fiscal year. There’s a forum set up for comment and discussion.

After the meeting ends on Tuesday, it will be continued on Wednesday at 9 a.m. for installation of new officers.
