On my first night in Orlando, several of us from the TRLN Management Academy cohort from 2014 enjoyed dinner at a local Cuban restaurant called Havana’s. It was fun to get this group from across the country together for a meal to catch up on jobs and life.

My takeaways from this conference include learning more about the NMRT Treasurer position during this training year, and reading more about “transformational leadership,” a phrase I heard in an ALCTS program I attended at the conference on changes in Technical Services.
