NYLA/SSL PRESIDENTâ€™S WELCOME You made it! You're here. You've spent months arranging for permission and funding and day care and housing and travel and your workshops and plans for your absence. Now, pat yourself on the back, take a deep breath, and congratulate yourself for being here. You should be proud of yourself. You have enough belief in the profession and your role in the world of libraries to invest in all that it took to join us this weekend. It's time for the payoff. Take it all in. Expand your networks. Look with fresh eyes. Listen from a new perspective. Engage in challenging conversations. Think about what if? Plan on how could I? Scope out partnerships. Be empowered by what our vendors can do for you. Ask why? Ask why not? Reshape your vision. Transform your goals. Seek out what you came for. The conference team has worked tirelessly. Our presenters have put in hours of preparation. All aspects of this event have been planned with YOU in mind. The rest is up to you, my friends. Don't wait for the conference to impact YOU; make sure YOU make an impact at this conference. On behalf of NYLA-SSL, I extend our appreciation to the entire Conference Team. We are grateful for your passion and dedication to the organization. Our sincere gratitude, as well, to our presenters, both rookies and veterans; you each bring us a gift. And to our vendors and educational partners, we salute you for your ongoing support of libraries across New York State. Without you NONE of this would be possible.

Charles Benoit A former high school history teacher, Charles Benoit is the author of three award-winning mysteries, and two critically acclaimed Young Adult novels; YOU (2010), a Junior Library Guild Selection, and FALL FROM GRACE (2012). Newbery Medallist Richard Peck called YOU “[A] closely observed slacker version of A Separate Peace for now, a time when the young are out of reach of adults but not of each other.” YOU was selected as a Junior Library Guild Selection. The Horn Book review of Fall From Grace (2012) says, “Benoit accomplishes something difficult—a well-paced novel about ennui…A satisfying examination of one high school boy’s life of quiet desperation.” His latest book, The Caller, will be published in the fall of 2013. Charles works as a Senior Copywriter and Producer and frequently teaches creative writing workshops around the county. He and his wife, Rose, a high school English teacher, live in Rochester, NY. He is not normally this stuffy.Website: http://www.charlesbenoit.com
