A number of the educational offerings at the 1999 Annual Meeting will support the Association's interest in partnering through active participation in programs by groups associated with AALL. The Annual Meeting program planners, at the direction of President Heller, identified specific groups and associations that should be represented at the 1999 Annual Meeting. President Heller directed the planners to propose programs for the Annual Meeting featuring representatives from both AALL and our legal information partners that would appeal to members from both groups and would focus on the issues that affect all of us. The conference theme, "At the Crossroads: Information Management, Technology, and Policy," not only represents the many issues facing law librarians at this crucial time, but also reflects the interconnectedness of all the players involved in the legal information arena.
