Discussion “Introducing the ALCTS New Members Interest Group”

by Keisha Manning on Fri, Oct 16, 2009 at 08:49 am

“Introducing the ALCTS New Members Interest Group”

 

Established in September 2009, the ALCTS New Members Interest Group (ANMIG) will provide a forum for exchanging information and discussing issues of interest to new ALCTS members. It will serve as a vehicle to create a feedback mechanism for new members while helping them build a knowledgebase of the organization and its resources.

“Introducing the ALCTS New Members Interest Group”

 

Established in September 2009, the ALCTS New Members Interest Group (ANMIG) will provide a forum for exchanging information and discussing issues of interest to new ALCTS members. It will serve as a vehicle to create a feedback mechanism for new members while helping them build a knowledgebase of the organization and its resources.

Information gained from the ANMIG will be used as a basis for discussion of ALCTS programs/services initiatives via ALCTS committees and groups, and how these services impact new members.

The interest group will have both an online and in person presence. The features of ALA Connect will be used to share information and ideas, hold chat sessions, etc. In person meetings will be held at ALA Midwinter Meetings and the ALA Annual Conferences. The first meeting will be held during the 2010 Midwinter Meeting in Boston on Saturday, January 16 from 10:30 a.m.-noon. The location will be announced when it is available.

We encourage all new ALCTS members to join the ALCTS New Members Interest Group community. Veteran members are invited to join as well. The ANMIG has been created as an open community in ALA Connect so non-ALCTS member and non-ALA members can also participate.

We welcome all suggestions in making this IG a success for our new members and ALCTS at large.
