The Annual Assembly is a gathering of all NEKLS member libraries to approve the budget, elect system board members, and discuss system business. Libraries need to have their System Representative present at the Annual Assembly in order to vote.
The cost is $15 per person, which includes breakfast and lunch. To pay in advance, mail a check to the NEKLS office, or call the office to charge to a credit card. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted the day of the event.
Our guest speaker for this year is Lee Rainie, Director of Internet and Technology Research at Pew Research Center.
Under Lee’s leadership, the Center has issued more than 650 reports based on its surveys that examine people’s online activities and the Internet’s role in their lives. The American Sociological Association gave Rainie its award for “excellence in the reporting on social issues” in 2014 and described his work as the “most authoritative source of reliable data on the use and impact of the internet and mobile connectivity.”
