#MLTW2017 – Thank You

I would like to thank the sponsors, speakers, and attendees who made MLTW 2017 such a success.

  • The sponsors’ support is an investment in the quality of Military Librarianship, and we earnestly appreciate that support.
  • The speakers were thoughtful, experienced, and engaging. Thank you for working hard to make your sessions relevant and vital.
  • The attendees did more than merely attend; you asked thoughtful questions during sessions and discussed among your peers across military branches and type of library.

Without the engagement of all, a conference can’t succeed. With that engagement, it always does.

I would like to add a special thank you to the MLTW Committee, which I had the honor of being the chair over the course of the last eighteen months. Your efforts were indefatigable, and I am proud and grateful to have worked with you.

In early 2018, we will ask for volunteers to make MLTW 2019 a much bigger success. If you would like to participate, keep an eye open for that e-mail. I can testify that it is a very satisfying way to contribute to both your own professionalization and the health of Military Librarianship overall.

Very respectfully,

Travis Ferrell
MLTW 2017 Chair
