See what's new, exciting, and decidedly different during a tour covering the city's major highlights. "City in a Garden," Chicago's motto, is much more than a slogan. On this tour, attendees will experience vistas from the extraordinary Millennium Park, the glorious lakefront and Navy Pier, Chicago's number one tourist attraction. Chicago’s remarkable architecture will also be highlighted as attendees learn how the modern styles evolved and produced the ever increasing panorama of world-class structures. A stop will be made at the Willis Tower Skydeck, formerly known as the Sears Tower. The Skydeck offers spectacular views spanning up to four states, a Chicago experience full of interactive exhibits and…The Ledge, a glass balcony extending four feet outside the 103rd floor of Willis Tower!

Buyer/Supplier Roundtable

SLA and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) will host a Buyer/
Supplier Roundtable: Buyers and Suppliers Focus on the Future.

Content buyers know what their organizations will need in the future; content vendors are the ones who will build those products and services. This unique roundtable provides a forum for big-picture thinking around the future of information work, bringing buyers and sellers together to discuss key trends.

Mixed tables of buyers and sellers will participate in facilitated brainstorming on emerging topics in information usage and demand such as:

  • End-user focus for content products
  • Platform-neutral services (buy once, access anywhere)
  • Measurement and ROI


Come lay the groundwork for the next generation of development for both buyers and sellers by learning how "the other half" thinks, in a collaborative environment.

This is an invitation-only event (with limited capacity). If you have content buying responsibility or influence the decision-making process, you may request an invitation from Natasha Kenner.

SLA Career Connection Seminar: Make the Most of a Difficult Situation: Solutions to Get You Through

Every person experiences a difficult work situation at least once. A rough project, a harsh boss, an unfriendly work environment or even an unpleasant physical space can threaten productivity, working relationships, and the ability to succeed. We might ignore the situation, become combative, flee, or even feel that it is our fault. This session will cover tactics for surviving – and perhaps thriving in – a challenging situation. There will be time for questions so that participants can get advice about situations they have seen or encountered.

Jill Hurst-Wahl, Syracuse University

Leadership Orientation

SLA’s association, chapter, division and caucus leaders and those who might consider a leadership opportunity will gather to consider a key question:  If we did not exist, what association model would we build now?   A second key topic will be “Finding and Grooming Tomorrow’s Leaders – Tailor to Your Unit’s Needs,”  which will address tips on enticing/encouraging volunteers to take unit roles, developing strategies for making each role’s workload reasonable and enjoyable, and clarifying that not every unit must have every conceivable committee.  The final topic is personal for leaders:  “How to parlay SLA experience into a promotion, a new job … even your LinkedIn Profile”.
