Should I Pay To Present @ LITA?
This is one of those good news / bad news posts.
On behalf of the LITA Forum Planning Committee, I am pleased to notify you that your proposal for a program at the 2005 LITA National Forum in San Jose, CA, "LISNews: Collaborative Open Source Librarian News", has been accepted as a concurrent session. Please reply to this message
LITA can't pay travel or lodging for concurrent session presenters. Presenters are also expected to register for the forum, albeit at a discounted rate.
Work won't pay for me to go. So that means I'll need to spend (I'm guessing) $800 to present at LITA.
So my question, for those who are wise in the ways of conferences.... If you were me, would you do it? Money is an issue, but this won't send me into bankruptcy or anything close.
