We had a steering committee meeting for JCLC 2012 (Joint Conference of Librarians of Color) this evening, and I was so happy to see the new pin we had designed for the conference. We have a limited number of pins, and they are only $5.00 each. The pin will probably be the first of a limited edition collectors’ set. How cool is that?! If you’d like to purchase a pin, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I had the privilege of attending the first JCLC, and it was probably one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in my career as a librarian. The conference is truly for ALL librarians, not just those of color. The energy and passion in the atmosphere at JCLC I made me proud to be a librarian.
If you’d like a pin commerating the 2nd JCLC, which will be in Kansas City in 2012, let me know. Likewise, if you’d like more information about the conference or are interested in presenting at the conference, please let me know. It’s truly a unique experience and opportunity.
