Looking for LITA members to help plan LITA President's Program on UX

Attention all UX fans!

Lou Rosenfeld, Information Architecture and User Experience expert of polar bear book fame, has agreed to be the speaker for my LITA President's Program at ALA Annual in San Francisco, CA.  It's taking place on Sunday, June 28, from 3-4 pm.  Here's more info: http://www.ala.org/lita/conferences/annual/2015

I need your help!  He's going to be in town for a few days, and for the day of his talk, and potentially for some time after his talk, we need to be sure he's taken care of. There might be opportunities to have a meal with him.  I'd also like to organize some type of activity that engages the LITA membership on the topic of UX leading up to the event.  We'll also need to work closely with the newly formed LITA Communications & Marketing Committee to help advertise.

In short, I'm looking for some volunteers for a 2015 LITA President's Program Planning Team that would like to help me plan the event and his visit - so everyone involved has a good experience (see what I did there?).

I don't think your physical presence is required to help with the planning, but obviously I'll need a few people on site to help with logistics.

If you are interested or have questions, please contact me:  revacek@uh.edu.  I'd like to have the team put together by next week, so you have until Sunday, March 8th to contact me.

Thanks, and feel free to share this info with those you think might be interested.

Rachel Vacek,
LITA President
