In my experience, what I have gotten out of each CLA Conference has been directly connected to how much I put into it. The more I engage, the busier I am. The busier I am, the later I stay up enjoying the company of my amazing colleagues from around the state. The later I stay up, the more tired I am when I get home. And the more tired I am, the more I realize just how much I’ve learned and just how much fun I’ve had.
You can learn about the details of the upcoming CLA Conference elsewhere in this issue or on the conference website, so I won't list all of the details here, but I guarantee that there's an exciting creative energy on this year's planning team. I hope you will check out the wide variety of fun, interactive, and educational activities we have in store, and tell a friend. Or better yet, bring a friend and experience the awesomeness together!
This is YOUR conference. I encourage you to dive in, take full advantage, and make it your own. We all have something to learn from you, so let us hear it. Let’s Make Some Noise!
