Who Pays Again

I am reposting to correct some design problems. Zoho staff gave me some suggestions.

I am attending the Annual Conference of the American Library Association in Washington, D.C in a few days. I am fortunate for my library is paying for me to attend. It was not always so, as I was not in line to get conference funding at several libraries. Being of modest income, I did not attend conferences when I had to pay the costs. I suspect this is the case with many other librarians, but do I really know? Maybe there are librarians paying their own way or finding creative ways to pay to attend.

If you are among the fortunate attending this week's ALA conference, please take my brief survey about who is paying. I am not asking any confidential information, so there are no privacy issues. Perhaps this results of this survey will show how important or unimportant employer support is for conference attendance.

(If you are using an aggregator, like Bloglines or Google Reader, you will need to come to the original blog to take the survey.)

Thanks for taking the survey.

Hi, Rick!

I just did your survey. You forgot us regional system people, so I chose the nonprofit agency option.

Hope to see you in DC. You may know I'm in NYS now, and we get to drive down!!

Same for me - I work for a Library System in Wisconsin so I used the nonprofit agency option, too.
