Subcommittee Rosters and Charges

Thank you to everyone who responded and agreed to be a member of a subcommittee. Below are the rosters and charges. The ideal timeline for completion of these projects is Annual 2015. Please coordinate with your subcommittee members to develop a work plan. I am happy to answer questions or meet virtually for any of these subcommittees. 

Given that some of us are traveling to MW, I don't expect we'll get started on these projects before our Feb. 9 virtual meeting, but please plan to give an informal progress report by our March 2 meeting (just a quick "here's what we're planning or have done so far").

1. Connect Welcome Page

Charge: To draft a welcome page (including message, helpful links, contact info) for first time logins to Connect of ALA members and first time logins to Connect of non-members. (Earlier work on this: http://connect.ala.org/node/178590)
