Meet the Authors at 2010 OLA Super Conference

This week (February 24-27), the Ontario Library Association will be holding their annual Super Conference at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Municipal World staff and authors will be there on Thursday and Friday to share information about new and upcoming books. I hope you will join us for the following two Meet the Author events at the conference.

1. Roadmap to Success: Implementing the Strategic Plan

On Thursday, February 25, 2010, Municipal World will be hosting a Meet the Author event for the new book, Roadmap to Success.

In his new book, author Thomas Plant discusses the importance of developing a vision and clear goals, to provide a roadmap for the municipal organization and guide service delivery to the public. Thomas provides a checklist of the fundamental components of a successful planning process, and details the key leadership role senior management has in thinking strategically and utilizing the strategic plan as the key document to drive change in the organization.

2. Rediscovering the Wealth of Places

On Friday, February 26, Municipal World will be hosting a Meet the Author event for the new book, Rediscovering the Wealth of Places.

Recognizing the new economic realities facing them, a growing number of municipalities across Canada are turning to municipal cultural planning as a powerful tool to support economic development and community building. In his new book, author Dr. Greg Baeker provides a practical introduction to core planning concepts and tools. This includes a methodology for cultural mapping and the systematic identification of a wide range of local cultural assets. A strong focus is placed on the effective integration of culture in planning across municipal departments, and with a look at some leading practices from Canada and around the world.
