why do you go [or not go] to Midwinter?

There has been some discussion on the ALA Council list lately about why people go to conferences and why they don’t go to conferences. As an outreach librarian who asks a lot of people why they DON’T go to the library, this question interests me. Rochelle has a little mock-up of an unofficial survey over on her blog. If you’ve got some feedback that you’d like to give to an ALA Councilor, head over there. If you’d like to read some of the Council back and forth, you can check out the ugly but quite functional ALACOUN list archives where surveying is discussed.
