Annual SLA Conference 2018: Projecting Your Value

CPD25 is pleased to bring you our eleventh annual SLA (Senior Library Assistant) Conference, designed for those who supervise staff, services or both.

Over the course of the day we will help staff to consider how opportunities for personal and career development are not necessarily limited to progression, but may develop through taking part in projects or initiatives.

This will be a highly participative day with plenty of opportunities for networking – enabling attendees to share their experience and best practice. This event is open to all, but would benefit in particular Senior Library assistants, Information Services Supervisors, Library Assistants, information Assistants or their equivalent.
