The following (except for the last) are events I wish I could attend. Unfortunately, most of them are being held on week days. If anyone who reads this will be going to any of the following, I'd appreciate any feedback regarding the sessions I wish I had the time and/or money to attend.
The League of Corporate Foundations is holding the "Corporate Social Responsibility Expo." According to the ad, it's a free event! I'm particularly interested in "Looking into Business Solutions to Public Education Problems" by Aniceto Sobrepena (Metrobank Foundation) and "Business & Education: Unleashing New Value in Education Through Corporate Philanthropy & Public-Private Partnership" by Usec Juan Miguel Luz (Department of Education).July 8-10
The Ayala Museum is hosting "Manila, a World Entrepot: 16th-19th Century Exchange of Objects Between Asia, Europe and the Americas." The "Conservation Roundtable," with participants from the New York Public Library, the Newberry Library (Chicago), the National Museum of Ethnology (Leiden, Netherlands), and the Ayala Museum, is something I really wish I could attend. But it will cost 850 pesos to attend just the roundtable. So...July 9-11
Neil Gaiman, creator/writer of the Sandman comics, will be signing books and doing some reading from his works. Check out his itinerary here (scroll down to see his schedule in the Philippines).July 11-15
The Association of Booksellers for the Academe and the Professions is sponsoring the "9th Philippine Academic Bookfair." Some seminar-workshops (pdf) for librarians and teachers are available.July 14
The Women's Business Council Philppines has organized the "1st Philippine Summit on Women & Technology" (pdf). Roselle Ambubuyog—Filipina, blind, and summa cum laude and valedictorian (!) at Ateneo de Manila—will be speaking on "Winning Against All Odds." If she can do it, then librarians have no excuse =)July 19
The Philippine Board on Books for Young People will be celebrating National Children's Book Day. Unfortunately, they don't have a website, and there don't seem to be any press releases available online at this time.July 21
The Children’s Library is conducting its "5th Annual Teacher-Librarian Seminar-Workshop" for public school teacher-librarians, plus district supervisors and principals. Unlike the other events listed above, I will be attending this one because I was invited to be a speaker =)
