I am a member of TASL, AASL, TLA, ALA, and NCTE. I have utilized the TASL e-list to ask questions about acquiring non fiction resources. I am already making plans to attend a TASL meeting this summer and the annual conference in the fall. I have attended the NCTE convention 10 times and plan to go again this fall when it is hosted in Atlanta.
I look forward the the NCTE meetings: from meeting authors, getting books to bring back for students, sessions on current topics, and networking with other professionals. Even before I became the LMS at my school I learned a lot from the NCTE conference and am looking forward to going back in this capacity.
