More Virtual Engagement: What Might ALCTS Future Be?
The ALCTS Exchange is a singular celebration and a community exploration of a new kind of professional engagement. Marrying four real time live streams with asynchronous content and dialog, the Exchange pushes the boundaries of what professional meetings, conversations, and learning could be. Event planners and ALCTS staff will reflect on their learning from the experience of prioritizing inclusiveness, interaction, innovation and impact and consider the implications for the community and the trends the Exchange experience illuminates.
