For those attending the 2013 SLA Annual Conference in San Diego, this webinar should prove useful:
So you’re packing your bags and heading to San Diego For SLA. Not sure what to do or what to expect? Not sure what to wear or do? How far is your hotel from the convention center? What do you REALLY need to know that won’t be found in the conference planner? What’s a rookie to do??? You certainly don’t want to strike out alone. Let us help you take the “America’s Finest City” like a pro! The Baseball Caucus, along with the San Diego Chapter and the Business & Finance Division, will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, May 23rd at 9AM PST (NOON EASTERN) to get you ready for the upcoming conference. Veterans of past conferences and folks from the San Diego hospitality team – the folks who REALLY know San Diego – will be on-hand to answer your questions and help you hit a home run at the SLA conference.
Questions? Contact Tony Landolt, Baseball Caucus [email@example.com] or Kyle Naff, Business & Finance Division [firstname.lastname@example.org].
