9:30-3:30              Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Addressing Stereotypes and Creating a Welcoming Environment - Grand Chenier
Through video, interactive exercises, and storytelling, Govan and Hollins will illustrate how implicit racial stereotypes can influence attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs about others and create barriers to genuine relationships. The workshop also aims to help booksellers understand the factors that create a sense of welcoming in an independent bookstore, from the inventory to the diversity of staff members, as well as how implicit biases — whether about race, gender, age, or disability status — come into play in creating such an environment for staff and customers.

Through the workshop, participants will:


* Develop a shared language of cultural competence to serve as a roadmap for creating diverse, equitable, and inclusive bookstores.
* Learn and practice tools for engaging in courageous conversations about difficult issues with employees and customers.
* Increase their awareness and knowledge of the impact of stereotypes on our everyday thoughts and actions.
* Learn strategies for countering implicit bias and stereotype threat in the workplace.
* Reflect on practical applications of new skills at a personal and organizational level.

Booksellers can learn more about implicit bias and stereotypes through the New York Times video series “Who, Me? Biased?”  Register Here.

8:40-9:30              How to Use Analytical Tools to “Work Better, Read More"Nottoway
One of the biggest challenges facing booksellers is effective inventory management. Picking the right collection of books is perhaps the greatest service provided to customers, but it can also be time consuming. It’s an art to successfully increase turns while maintaining or improving margins. But science can help. By using data analytics to uncover sales trends and benchmark performance, you can take much of the guesswork out of your operations. In this session, you will learn how to use the data in Edelweiss+Analytics to guide your stocking decisions and increase efficiency.

8:40-9:30              Independent Bookstores & Indie Authors: Creating a Match Made in Heaven. - Bayside C
As more and more authors are looking to self-publish their books, they are consistently looking for advice from their local independent bookseller. In the past, self-publishers may have posed more of a nuisance to a busy bookseller. But today, many bookstores are seeing this as an opportunity to turn authors into customers by offering publishing programs as a store service. This not only brings forth new content to readers but adds value to the entire publishing industry. This session will showcase current booksellers who have successfully built such programs and introduce you to IngramSpark, a Publish-on-Demand service for authors. Learn how to:

·  bridge the ‘gap’ in conversations between a bookseller and author

·  find positive solutions for ‘rejecting’ and ‘re-directing’ authors

·  utilize IngramSpark for instore publishing programs

 

8:40-9:30     Profiting from Trends: Be Innovative, Make Money, and Have Fun! - Bayside A
Doug Robinson, owner of Eagle Eye Books (and SIBA Board President) and Linda-Marie Barrett, Assistant Executive Director of SIBA discuss some of the leading consumer trends of 2017, describe how to spot trends, and explore ways bookstores can monetize, improvise, and improve their bottom lines by reaching consumers in new ways. Attendees will be encouraged to share examples of ways their stores adapt to trends.

10:40-11:40       Maximizing Backlist : Proven ways to market, promote, and sell backlist titles - Bayside C
A bookstore’s frontlist sales — which are spurred by handselling, current events, reviews, and media coverage — are essential. But when it comes to bottom-line profits, backlist titles with proven track records can be an equal, and potentially more manageable, asset. In this session, ABA senior staff and Board members will explore proven ways to market, promote, and sell backlist titles.
