Do we want to meet at ALA Midwinter?

Hi everyone,

I want to welcome two new members two our committee.  Laura Haines has attended our meetings, and has formally joined the Health and Medical Reference Committee, and Stephanie Wiegand has also joined and is very interested in working on the Guidelines.

Semi-urgent question: I need to know if we would like to have a meeting at ALA Midwinter conference in Seattle.  RSS does not schedule an all-committee meeting at Midwinter.  But if half of us can make it, we can schedule a meeting. If we decide to meet, I need to schedule it by Sept. 25.

So I'd like to take a vote.  Please reply to this message with a vote of 'yes' or 'no' about having a meeting at Midwinter in Seattle, January 25-29, 2013.  If you post your answer at the top of the reply message, it goes onto this posting in ALA Connect as well as going to everyone.
