Aug. 7 SLA-MN Salon: Associations - who needs them?

The next SLA Minnesota Salon will be held at the Walker Art Center Open Field. Open Field offers a mash-up of experiences and a chance to get together. For this Salon we are mashing up discussion, mingling with other associations and picnicking.

The topic up for discussion will be "Associations. Who Needs Them?" We'll explore what the benefits/challenges are of belonging to professional associations and attending professional conferences.

Bring your picnic blanket or chair and enjoy a summer evening with SLA-MN.
