Midwinter 2012 Meeting Schedule

Colleagues,

It's that time of year again: time to schedule GODORT meetings for Midwinter 2012. If you haven't already done so, please let me know if and when your committee or task force would like to meet at Midwinter. As a reminder, last year's schedule can be found at http://bit.ly/qsBDQO.

Please let me know your preferences by close of business Monday, September 26th.

Thanks,

Geoff Swindells

If you haven't contacted me with your meeting preferences for Midwinter 2012, you still have time. ALA has extended the submission deadline, so I'm doing the same: send me your meeting preferences by close of business Wednesday, September 28.

Just a quick update:

  • I've entered meetings into the ALA database according to the information that chairs and coordinators provided. If I have not yet heard from you, I've created a placeholder for your committee.
  • The following committees have elected not to meet FTF at Midwinter: Awards, Bylaws, Conference, Education, GITCO, and Membership.
  • If you are holding a meeting, next week I will be contacting each of you individually to nail down the details of the meeting. Be thinking about things like room setup, expected audience, A/V requirements, and how you would like to describe your meeting to the world at large -- including expected topics and type (e.g. business meeting, discussion group, etc.). I will post some documents to help you think about this. We can continue to edit meeting records until October 10th, but there are additional opportunities to get changes into the online Scheduler.
  • Next week, I will also start to build the backbone of the conference wiki  ...

Here are two ALA documents to help you plan and publicize your meeting. There will be a test ;-)

All chairs and coordinators holding meetings at Midwinter should have received a review of the meeting details this morning.

If you didn't, please let me know ASAP.

If you want to change anything, please let me know ASAP.

If you've changed your mind, and want to cancel your meeting, please let me know ASAP.

Thanks,

Geoff
