GLBTRT Membership Promotion Chair Report - ALA Annual 2013

- ALA Annual: I have sent out a doodle schedule to the committee to staff our kiosk on Saturday and Sunday. So far only one person has volunteered for one hour. I would like confirmation from the committee on who specifically can make it to Annual this year. I will staff it when I am available, as I am also going to all GLBT sessions to make sure our info is available at the door. One of our responsibilities is covering the Diversity & Outreach Fair. I will be there, and would love another committee/board member with me. I will also be representing us at the NMRT orientation.
- Promotion: We will need to continually reevaluate our print and web offerings to entice new members and keep our current members. I think our web committee and membership committee should talk about efforts to keep our social media presence current and timely.
