GLBTRT Membership Promotion Chair Report - ALA Midwinter 2013

In the time since the ALA Meeting in Anaheim, there has been very little official work for our committee. The call for nominations for the upcoming election was sent out. Hopefully we have a good turn out of candidates.

In going forward, our committee will need to focus on the following:

  • ALA Annual: We have to perpare for our booth at Annual, OLOS Diversity & Outreach Fair, and The Association Options Fair.
  • Promotion: We will need to continually reevaluate our print and web offerings to entice new members and keep our current members.
  • Election: Have conversations with the GLBTRT Board about Board members reaching out to recruit for the elections. Some on the Membership Committee are not as well connected and unfamiliar with the recruitment process.

I welcome suggestions or additions to this report.  I am presenting in Seattle and would love to have any discussions about the GLBTRT, and I am looking forward to seeing people at the social.

Respectfully Submitted,

Sherry Machones
