What do other people say about ASLA conferences...ASLA 2007 delegate
This is my first national conference and I am so impressed. It could have been overwhelming but the inclusion of both big picture issues and current teacher librarians running workshops means I can walk away with ideas to begin taking small steps. Great balance for me.
