Training Tactics: NEFLIN Classes Open for CFLC Members

From Marta Westall, CFLC Executive Director:
During these lean times, the Florida Library Cooperatives are, well, cooperating to offer continuing education and training opportunities to library staff in various regions. Our sister Cooperative, NEFLIN, has stepped up to offer training programs to CFLC members. In a few days you will be receiving an e-mail outlining the opportunities for October through December 2009. Be sure to note that while some of the training is free, or reasonably priced, there is a process for cancellation and/or sending a replacement. If you are registered and don't show up you will be charged. It is gratifying to see that the spirit of cooperation is alive and well in Florida!
