Discussion Our committee's update for Spring 2013

by Cathay Keough on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 10:03 am

Hello RSS Marketing and PR Committee,

I'm sure your spring has been wildly busy - it feels like libraries have gone full throttle this year!]

I have a few tidbits to pass along to you:

1.  Please join me in offering a big Thank you and Congratulations to our Jessica Hagman for stepping in as our next Chair!  The new term begins around the same time as ALA Annual.  Jessica - I'm very happy you have agreed to take this on.  I know you will be great in leading this group!

I am moving over to co-chair MARS/VR with Don Boozer, so I'll stay involved with virtual reference and all reference services.  Please feel free to keep in touch!  If you would like me to remain on the this committee during the transition, please let me know.

2.  On a down note, our workshop proposal for ALA Annual 2014/Las Vegas was not accepted this year.  It was actually well-received but RUSA had too many proposals and had to make some difficult choices.  I was told that they want to keep it in mind in case something else falls through.  But Jessica and the committee can organize a discussion and meeting instead of a workshop for next year.

3.  Update me on who is going to ALA Annual?  Would you like to meet up there?
