Did you miss any of ILTA’s programming for knowledge management professionals this past year? Below is a catalog of what you may have missed. Because programming is member-driven based on your requests and feedback, the categorization below gives you insight into what your peers think are hot topics.
But first, some background for those new to ILTA programming. ILTA produces KM programming in a variety of formats, building upon timely themes. Each year, you can count on targeted articles and sessions in the Knowledge Management White Paper, typically published in June, and at ILTACON, held in August. Throughout the rest of the year, the ILTA KM blog delivers a steady stream of thoughtful content approximately every two weeks. Keep an eye out for articles in other places, such as the Peer to Peer magazine, and ad hoc sessions, such as webinars, virtual roundtables and vendor product briefings. To facilitate open sharing and discussion, the latter are not always recorded, so be sure to attend those with topics of interest to you. Lastly, the Connected Community Discussion Board features lively Q&A and announcements among an active, 1600-member community.
And because Knowledge Management can touch on many other areas, don’t forget to check out programming that may not be specifically targeted to KMers but is relevant to you nonetheless. Searches in the Connected Community will lead you to publications, recordings and discussions across a multitude of areas. Also browse the ILTA TV page where you will find dozens of short interviews with thought leaders in fields that touch Knowledge Management directly and indirectly.
Note that you do need to be an ILTA member to access many of these resources. What are you waiting for?

In 2017, we have big plans for programing relevant to KM professionals. Look for a year-long focus on artificial intelligence and the changing legal market. In addition, the biennial KM survey, which provides useful comparability metrics, is due to be published in July 2017. If you have suggestions for content you would like to see, respond to this blog post or feel free to contact me directly. Better yet, start a discussion amongst your peers on the Connected Community Discussion Board.
