Plan to join the  <> SLA Maryland Chapter as thought
leaders, practitioners, industry providers and colleagues convene for a full
day of programming devoted to leveraging data - perhaps the single-most
important skill that will define the next generation of leaders and future
directions in the information profession.   

"Leveraging Data to Lead" will look at issues around digital content,
delivery and the skills sets needed to succeed in today's data-driven
workplaces.  Digital data is everywhere, in every sector, organization, and
economy.  Data-savvy information professionals will have unprecedented
opportunities to be among the new leadership within their organizations as
they learn how to use data to create value, enhance productivity, and
promote innovation.   

The Program

Three nationally known thought leaders and innovators will open the program
with keynote addresses that are both practical and provocative:  James King,
Information Architect, National Institutes of Health Library; Nancy Faget,
Army Research Laboratory Data Wrangler; and Richard Huffine, Independent
Information Professional.  Each is an instrumental player in the Federal
sector, SLA, and ALA.  They will offer their personal experiences and
insights on using data to propel organizations and information professionals
forward toward shared success.  

The keynotes will be followed by more than 12 concurrent presentations from
practitioners in diverse information sectors who are leading their
organizations in integrating digital data in innovative ways and building
strong inter-disciplinary collaborations.  

Rounding out the day will be: over 17 table top exhibits from companies that
are developing leading-edge products and services supporting a
data-intensive workplace; a luncheon; a Data Community of Practice Wrap-up
Session; and a networking opportunity to conclude! 

Who Should Attend? 

Information professionals in all types of management settings will want to
attend-from corporate, associations, public, academic, and government, to
DOD, medical, and legal.  Participants including librarians, knowledge and
records managers, archivists, information architects and specialists, CIOs,
researchers and analysts can expect to gain theoretical and practical
knowledge from a broad cross-section of the information profession.
Knowledge that can be applied to their own workplace environment to improve
individual and organizational performance.
