Central | 2:00 p.m. Eastern)
Presenter:  Melanie Hawks
Description:
Personal and professional commitments can collide at any career stage. 
What does a healthy life-work balance look? How should you use limited 
resources in the face of limitless possibilities? How can you accomplish 
your goals, fulfill your obligations, and still get a decent night's sleep?

This webcast will provide you with tools you can use to:

    * Define what "balance" means to you
    * Explore your assumptions about what you should (and shouldn't) be 
doing with your time
    * Set clear priorities and maintain them, even under stress

Registration fees are as follows:

ACRL member: $50
ALA member: $75
CACUL member: Can$90 (charges will be made in U.S. dollars)

Group*: $295

* Webcasts take place in an interactive, online classroom environment 
with one user/one login. If you select the group rate, one person must 
register, login, and keyboard during the event. A group registration 
allows an institution to project the Webcast to participants in the same 
location.
