Where is the Main Website?

If you are reading this you may have noticed our main website is no longer up and running.  Mea culpa! The domain did expire while I’ve been monitoring the winding up process of the NE2007 corporation.

Do not fret! The site fortunately is still available here for now:
http://www.law-lib.utoronto.ca/NE2007/default.html

The programs are also available through the AALL website since they sponsored the recording of programs as follows:  http://www.aallnet.org/prodev/ by clicking on the “Visit CPE Media” link.  You do need a membership to view them from this site (but they are available free from the University of Toronto site link above).

Questions? Comments? Concerns?   Feel free to contact me – conniecrosby@gmail.com

Thank you,
Connie

Presentations Now Posted

A Proceedings page has now been added, and presentation slides plus handouts (all in PDF format) have been posted for those we currently have on hand.  More will be added as we receive them.  We are still working on loading the audio files, but didn’t want to hold up the other content for you.

Thank you, Everyone!

It was a long time in the coming, hard to believe it is over! Thank you to everyone everyone who was there, and even some who did not manage it:

  • all the delegates who came and participated. It was our pleasure to put this on for you!
  • all the vendors (exhibitors, sponsors and delegates) who supported us in this unique endeavour;
  • all the speakers and moderators who provided us with a stellar program;
  • the Ontario Legislative Assembly and staff of the Legislative Library of Ontario who gave us a fabulous kick-off in our opening reception;
  • all the volunteers who kept things running smoothly on site, hosted our TALL Tower Tours, and helped guide folks in our dutch treat dinners;
  • all the conference organizers/committee members who put their blood, sweat and tears into it;
  • all our colleagues who kept things running in our offices while we were preoccupied;
  • all our families who similarly put up with our stress levels;
  • and innumerable others who supported us and made this an amazing event.

This conference took 4 years to organize since first discussed by Steve Weiter and Danielle Brousseau at an AALL conference, and included participation from at least 10 associations/AALL chapters.

It is so hard to believe it is over…..

Cheers,
Connie

She has a wonderfully written self-titled blog at http://barbaraflowers.blogspot.com/ which you really must read. And if you hunt around a bit, you will also come across her travel blogging.

Welcome aboard, Barbara!

It’s Almost Here!

One more sleep until the conference!   I am just at home packing my things and getting one last good night of sleep before we kick things off tomorrow evening.   I’m sure many of you are doing the same.  Earlier this evening I poked my head in on the delegate bag stuffing/registration envelope collation and was very impressed with our fantastic group of volunteers who had everything well in hand.

Thanks so much to all of you who are making this a reality!  All the hours of hard work, energy and imagination are finally coming together!

I expect to be at the conference hotel tomorrow after 3 pm if you have any questions for me.  But I well expect our fantastic registration and information desk volunteers to be able to field many of your questions.

The Toronto folk are very much looking forward to welcoming you!

Cheers,
Connie Crosby

Countdown to Meeting!

The committee co-chairs had our last meeting/conference call this morning.  Things are pretty much in order; we are just putting the finishing touches on the last details at this point.    We can’t wait for the opening reception Wednesday night, and to get the ball rolling! 

If you are coming, don’t forget to sign up for the TALL Tower Tours and add your name to the wiki for the Dutch Treat Dinners, both taking place Thursday evening (and yes, you can do both!).

Over 40 people have posted their name to the Looks Who’s Coming page.   Have you added yours?

Finally, we are looking for a few people to blog about the conference here on this blog.  Think of it as an opportunity to try out this blogging thing if you haven’t done so before!  If you are interested in giving it a try, please contact me directly.

Cheers!
Connie
