Special Edition of the NEFLIN Newsletter
We have so much news right now that we are putting out this special edition. A wrap-up of 2016 and what new projects staff can apply for, or events they can attend in 2017.

First off, the BIG Announcement.  Effective immediately, NEFLIN has retired its no-show policy.

After a full year of implementing user experience (UX) initiatives, NEFLIN decided that we would remove this barrier to training.

If you register for a class or event, and you find that you are unable to attend, we do ask that still notify us in advance or send a substitute.  

You can read more about cancellations on our Training Page .

Also announced, all of NEFLIN's training webinars are now archived and available on the Training Page. Now, with just a click from our site, you may view a  list of the recordings we have available.  These can be sorted, just like our class list, and will remain  "live" from our website for one year.  Please note: only registered attendees of the live webinars will receive certificates of completion.

Last year's Management Training Institute (MTI) was such a success that we reworked our budget to hold this again in 2017.  Applications are currently being accepted. The application deadline is October 21, 2016.

As part of our strategic planning process members told us that they wanted assistance with marketing services in their library that were underused, developing an overall marketing plan, or reviewing their current print and online marketing program.

If you would like on-site, personalized assistance from a national expert in marketing, then apply for the Marketing Project.  The application deadline November 15, 2016.
