Get Social @ NJLA Conference

Professional development? Great! Learning opportunities? Awesome! Networking? Stupendous! But what about the fun? 

Leave that to Member Services. Here are their highlights from their committee president Danielle Cesana:

"Monday evening we will be hosting a special trivia after the President’s Program.

Tuesday, after sessions, we will have a meet and greet mixer at Eden’s Lounge.

And after Honors & Awards, we have our Pool Party. No, you don’t need a bathing suit. It is more like a cocktail party around a luxurious pool. However, you can go in the pool if you want (with a bathing suit, please)"

And truly, what fun is fun without food?
