Three events for us - need your input!

Hello RSS Marketing and PR Committee!  I hope you are having a great June so far!

We have a some items coming up at ALA Annual, and I just want to make sure you have this on your calendar.  Please respond to the following...

1.  Slam the Boards - Our final part of this three part workshop is at ALA Annual, Chicago, as a discussion to help participants take the May webinar and personal experience to apply it to their library work.

Were you able to try it out on June 10?  How did "Slam" go for you?
What did you think about the "Slam" webinar in May?

If you cannot attend the discussion on Saturday, June 29 at 3-4 pm please let me know if you have any feedback you want to pass along. 

If you are attending this, I'd love to know that too so I can watch for you! 

Please respond to this thread with thoughts and that info.

I Cathay. I will be at our committee meeting and the RSS meeting. I will not be able to make it to the Slam the Boards presentation, unfortunately.

That should be "Hi Cathay"

Hi, all.

I should be able to attend at least part of the Slam the Boards meeting on June 29.

I'll be at the RSS meeting the morning of June 29.  I'm on another RSS committee, too (but I'm rotating off of that one soon, which will allow me to concentrate more on this committee), so I may need to go back and forth between tables.

I look forward to seeing committee members at ALA!
