The 2010 New York State Library Assistants Association (NYSLAA) conference was held June 9th - 11th in Corning, New York. The conference started off on Wednesday afternoon with tours available at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Benjamin Patterson Inn Museum. Each tour lasted about 2 hours and cost only $4.00 to attend. Wednesday evening NYSLAA held a Mixer at the Corning Incorporated Headquaters. The Mixer included a wine tasting, snacks and a tour of the sculptures at the headquarters.
Two workshops were held Thursday during the day. Most of the workshops were held at the Radisson Hotel in Corning. There were many different workshop to choice from when registering for the conference. (I'll post any and all conference workshop summaries on this blog when they become available). Thursday evening we were honored with a glass blowing demonstration followed by dinner and entertainment all held at the Corning Museum of Glass. Our conference badges gave us free admission to the museum along with a 10% discount at the museum gift shops.
Friday another two workshops were offered. Again, there were many different workshop to pick from. Friday afternoon we ended the conference with a luncheon at the Radisson. Our keynote speaker was Lee Welles.
It was another GREAT conference!
Next years conference is being held at SUNY Geneseo. If you have never attended a NYSLAA conference - I highly recommend you do! Next year's conference will be close to us. Hope to see you all there!
