The OLC Technical Services Division’s biennial Retreat will take place March 31 and April 1, 2016, at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center. The Retreat’s theme this year is “Link to the Future” and we are excited to have keynote speaker Bobby Bothmann. Visit the OLC site for details and registration information. The Technical Services Division Action Council is happy to be return to a great venue, and we have a slate of programs and speakers we are proud to offer. The format of the Retreat — where the participants and speakers stay for the entire length of the conference and have opportunities to network and socialize — is unique and we’re sure you’ll be glad you attended. But don’t take our word for it. Here are some comments from attendees at the 2014 retreat:
