This year SLA Toronto is organizing a buddy program for students and new members.

It’s a great networking opportunity!

We would also like to let everyone know about a volunteer opportunity with SLA! SLA Toronto has asked SLA-TSG for volunteers to help with an interview project in celebration of the Toronto chapter’s 75th anniversary. Volunteers would need to interview a past president or major contributor to SLA Toronto and write a short piece for the website.

If you’re interested in volunteering, send an email to sla.tsg.1@gmail.com and we’ll connect you with Christine DeLuca, SLA Toronto’s First Five Years chair.
