NCDLA Blended Conference

March 31 & April 1 , 2010 (Virtual Sessions)  / April 7-9, 2010 (New Bern, N.C.)

Last year’s virtual conference was a great success with 655 registrants from around North Carolina and the U.S.  In 2010, we will blend the best features of last year’s virtual conference with a face-to-face conference.

The 2010 NCDLA Blended Conference begins with two days of web-based sessions that can be attended from anywhere you access the Internet. The following week, we’ll convene in historic New Bern, N.C. where we will extend the experience with all the elements of a traditional conference.  The idea is that we’ll get to know one another through online sessions, and then deepen our conversations and acquaintances by meeting face-to-face.  If you can’t attend the New Bern conference, then become a member of NCDLA for only $25, and join us for the webinars and the 2-day Virtual Pre-conference!
