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

TALL Tower Tours – Thursday, October 18

Like poking around other peoples’ libraries? Looking for some new ideas? 
 
Toronto’s law libraries are mainly concentrated in the downtown core, but the libraries themselves vary in content and design. Join a tour of some of Toronto’s unique law libraries. Sign up sheets will be located at the Conference Information Desk. The tours will take you to two libraries and bring you back in time to join a Dutch Treat Dinner on Thursday evening.  If you would like more information, please email Mary Saulig,  msaulig@goodmans.ca .

Tour 1
Law Society of Upper Canada Great Library
Housed in a historic 1846 building, the combination of present-day resources and architectural splendor gives the Great Library its unique charm.

Ogilvy Renault
Come and see the library where form and function meet innovative office design.

Tour 2
Blaney McMurtry LLP
The  Moveable Feast – come see how we get 2000 linear feet of shelving into approximately 600 square feet of space!!!! Hint, its not magic.

McMillan Binch Mendelsohn LLP
Located on the 44th floor of one of Toronto’s most architecturally beautiful office spaces, McMillan Binch Mendelsohn’s library features floor-to-ceiling windows and easily one of the most stunning views in Toronto’s legal community.

Come dancing….

Can’t attend the conference, but in Toronto (and area) on October 20? Why not join us for the closing banquet?

Please come meet colleagues and new friends, enjoy a great meal and dance the night away – all are welcome!

Use the registration form, indicate that you’ll be registering only for the banquet, and make your cheque out to NE2007!

For those of us who are attending the conference, don’t forget that you can register your favourite dance partner as a guest at the opening reception and the closing banquet.

Early bird extended!

The conference organizers have decided to extend the early bird registration deadline to August 18 – so you still have time to take advantage of the discounted rates. The Social Committee have asked me to remind you that the banquet is ticketed separately from conference registration – if you’re planning to join us and dance the night away, please remember to indicate this in your registration (and pay the additional charge).

In recognition of their generous support of our program, members of AALL are invited to register as members of a “sponsoring chapter”.

Looking for a room-mate for the conference? Want to share suggestions for great places to visit while you’re in Toronto?  Connie has set up a wiki to allow delegates to share information, pose questions, and get ready! It’s address (not surprisingly) is http://librarieswithoutborders.pbwiki.com. The password (ne2007) is also posted on the home page.
