Are you involved with planning and implementing an all-staff event at your library? Thinking about a staff day and wondering about the next steps? A staff day may be a regularly scheduled opportunity for team building and morale boosting or may be a day specifically scheduled because of a building program, planning process or other shift in strategic directions.

Whatever the goals for the day, it's a day with high expectations that is often produced on a shoestring budget by those who are not professional event planners. Planning responsibilities may include finding speakers (often at low or no cost), arranging a venue, dealing with room setups and equipment, developing lunch plans, and ultimately creating a valuable learning experience for library staff.

Those attending the webinar will learn about:

  • A planning process that involves library leadership as well as employees in all parts of the library
  • Ideas for creative free or low-cost programs
  • The importance of "over-communication" and why branding is part of communication
  • How to evaluate and document the event to leave a legacy for future staff day planners

Join presenter Mary Ross—who has planned and implemented numerous all-staff events, as well as library-related conferences, workshops, and training—as she shares tips, tricks and strategies for success. You'll be able to tackle the challenges in planning and delivering an all-staff event, resulting in a day that is valuable to and celebrates the value of all employees.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
