Tonight! SLA Connect: Fredrikson & Byron Library Open House

The Fredrikson & Byron Library is hosting an open house for SLA members tonight 10/27, beginning at 4:00 PM.  We will be offering a guided tour of SLA Connect, the new interactive membership platform.  Learn how to logon, to change the frequency of email delivery, update your profile, and find contact information for other SLA members.  We’ll have laptops available for you to logon and change your settings right away, or you can bring your own laptop.

We’ll also have a guided tour of our library, which serves the needs of 300 attorneys and paralegals practicing in the areas of corporate and M&A, intellectual property, labor & employment, real estate, bankruptcy, tax, and more.

Afterwards we’ll head over to the Bank Restaurant at the Westin for networking and drinks.

Fredrikson & Byron is located in the North Tower of US Bank Plaza.   Our views from the 40th floor are spectacular, especially in the fall, and we’re right along the light-rail.  We hope you can join us for the open house, but you are also welcome to come for only the post-work networking at the Bank.  Please RSVP here accordingly.

Interested in the event but can’t make it downtown this day?  Send us an email with your preferred day and location. If there’s enough interest we’ll do this again.
