SLA-FCC Meet-Up in San Diego: a survey

Are you attending SLA 2013 this year in San Diego? If you’ve started looking at the schedule, you probably noticed that this year’s conference is very compact and filled with many great sessions and events. We are hoping that even with this streamlined conference schedule, we can still plan a time to meet-up with our Chapter members who will be attending.

We’ve created a very brief Doodle poll to gather input from all of you. If you plan on being in San Diego, please take a minute to respond, letting us know what time might work best for you:

There are a few things to note.
–Check out the online conference planner so you can get a sense of what else you might be doing:¬†http://www.sla.org/attend/sla-annual-conference/planner/
–For the first time, we are considering simply gathering during one of the already set-aside Expo times (Sun. June 9 @ 5pm or Tues. Jun 11 @ noon). If you select one of these times, be aware that we will simply be gathering in the Expo hall with no extra food and libations available ūüôā

We are trying to make this decision asap so that attendees can start planning. If you receive this message more than once, please only vote once… unless you are just that passionate about a particular time. Hope to see many of you in San Diego!

Doodle helps scheduling meetings and other appointments. Doodle is simple, quick, free and requires no registration. Simply set up a poll, send a link to all participants, watch progress online, and finally choose the most…
