Diane Foote

Hello everyone! K.T., thanks for getting us started! I'm thrilled to be working on this task force with all of you. Like K.T., I have never worked specifically on an ALSC Preconference task force, but I have been involved in ALSC events as a member and as a former executive director of the division. I've also got a marketing background, having working in children's book publishing before moving to Chicago and going to library school. I'm currently assistant dean at Dominican's Graduate School of Library and Information Science, so if you know any prospective librarians, send 'em my way!

We're so glad to have you on the committee, Diane, and I am really looking forward to working with you. Another thing you bring to the committee is your local expertise as a resident of Chicago, the site of the 2013 preconference.

Hey KT! That's right, I AM from Chicago! I am not sure how much my local knowledge will benefit us, but I can certainly visit potential venues, etc. I know that we are exploring the possibility of holding our preconference at the Art Institute of Chicago, and I can be available to meet in-person with ALSC staff and the Art Institute folks if necessary. I know that offsite events (meaning, those held at locations other than conference hotels or the convention center) can pose extra challenges (such as the lack of shuttle-bus service and possibly some other conference-level issues I can't even think of), but I don't think it's impossible.

I can help our attendees figure out how to get around, where to eat, etc. for sure!

Brandy, I'm looking forward to working with you again in this new capacity as well!
