Session Focus
Come share your experiences with colleagues regarding challenges that you have solved, challenges where you are weighing possible solutions and looking for advice, and challenges that look daunting and you are not sure where to start.  This session is an opportunity for shops to talk about problems they face and to consider solutions implemented in other organizations that have similar constraints in terms of size, dollars, and a regulatory framework largely dictated by a larger organization like a university, NGO, or government institution.  While the topics covered will mostly depend on audience interest, unfinished conversations from the Monday Small Shops Panel will also be entertained.  As in past conferences, the roundtable format is designed to facilitate networking, sharing of ideas, and adapting to insure that your small shop prospers.   Recently, IFD&TC organizers helped form a "Small Shops Engagement Work Group" and members of that committee have spent time reviewing small shops issues and, as appropriate, they will facilitate the conversation.
