LLAMA/NMRT New Leaders Discussion Group - Call for Discussion Starters

LLAMA/NMRT New Leaders Discussion Group invites the submission of proposals for "Discussion Starters" at its meeting at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, IL. A Discussion Starter is a short and informal presentation that aims to provide a starting point for lively conversations.

We look for enthusiastic Discussion Starters to share their experience (it could either be a positive experience or a lesson learned), helpful tips, and advice on the topics. A panel discussion format will be used for this part of the program. Each Discussion Starter will have 8 minutes to present their topic. We will then break into small groups (joined by Discussion Starters) for in-depth discussions of the topics and ideas raised.

At this year’s Annual conference, we are interested in *** topics focusing on how to develop public speaking skills to engage people and to effectively convey our message. We seek proposals for discussion starters that address this topic from a variety of angles, including (but not limited to):

- Techniques that have contributed to your successful public speaking experience
- Learning and growing from harrowing public speaking experiences
- Advice and tips based on experience***

Proposals are due by ***May 30***. Notification of acceptance will be made by ***June 10***.
