If you're interested in the workshop, register through SLA. See details
If you're interested in dinner in DC with others who work in taxonomy
and related fields, please let me know and we'll send you the details.
The venue will be moderately priced, but chosen partly based on the size
of the anticipated group.

Also, anybody in the area interested in joining a group of people

Ticketed Event #275
Price: US $349 member / US $500 non-member / US $175 student member
Search*doesn*t work. A bold statement! Come learn why * share your
experiences. How does taxonomy save search? What is the relationship
between taxonomy and meta-data? How do you build and deploy them to save
search? Taxonomy is now a *must have*, no longer a nice to have.
Meta-data and particularly taxonomies (and variation, therein) have been
openly embraced by nonbelievers and covertly co-opted by the naysayers.
Learn why and how you can make the business case for your organization.
Come armed with questions and real life challenges to stump the experts!
Intermediate to advanced * fundamentals to more advanced topics are
covered; attendees should have had exposure to the topic and be prepared
to contribute real world challenges.
