*The SLA Maryland Chapter cordially invites you to attend its spring dinner
program, "Sensemaking: Career Competencies for the Decade Ahead."  *Spend
an insightful evening with David T. Moore, instructor and author of *Critical
Thinking and Intelligence Analysis* (Occasional Paper, National Defense
Intelligence College) and *Sensemaking: A Structure for an Intelligence
Revolution*.  Mr. Moore will delve into the concept of sensemaking and how
to use it to capitalize on the deluge of content before us by turning it
into relevant, high-quality information that is decision-ready!


*A program you won't want to miss!  *SLA and others have identified
sensemaking as essential skill set for the future!  It has been estimated
that collectively, people spend more than 70 billion hours a year trying to
make sense of information they have gathered online.  Sound familiar?  As
information continues to proliferate at lightning speed we need to find
better ways to connect the dots.  Sensemaking is one way and is
increasingly becoming a go-to skill set for the 21st century workforce.



*About the Speaker:  *David T. Moore is a career senior intelligence
analyst, technical director at the National Security Agency and adjunct
faculty member of the National Cryptologic School.   Mr. Moore has been at
the forefront of developing sensemaking models for the intelligence
community.  His expertise in intelligence analysis competencies, methods,
and standards was developed over two decades of intelligence assignments.  He
continues to advocate and provide mentoring for adopting best practices in
intelligence.


*Who should attend?*  The program will be especially relevant to:

   - *Librarians *interested in evolving and enhancing their roles - from
   gatherer and supplier to analyst, educator and guide.
   - *Information professionals* seeking to add more value to their
   research findings and reinforce the value they provide to their
   organizations by learning how to turn information into competitive
   intelligence.
