Formal Membership Letter Drafts - New and Reinstated

    Hello All,

    Please see the attached draft New Member Letter and Reinstate Member Letter for ANSS.   I've made some very small changes to the templates that Terry gave me.  He had program information included in the letter for both mid-winter and annual - I assume as this draft was when we had that information, which we do not have now.

    Please let me know what you think of them as they stand now.  Adam sent Jenny and I the latest membership lists for June, so I'd like to get on sending the formal letters not long after I start at Hopkins.

    Thanks in advance!

    I like these letters and remember feeling individually welcomed when I got my own a few years ago.  My only editorial comment would be the double use of "excellent opportunities."  Paragraph 3 "groups provide excellent opportunities" and paragraph 4 "committees offer excellent opportunities".  I don't have anything great to offer in return, possibly "groups provide wonderful occasions" as discussion groups can be occasions while committees are opportunities. 

    I wonder if ALA Connect is doing something funky to the attachment.  Rather than being a .docx, it was a .zip folder.  I was hesistant to make changes on the document itself for fear I couldn't upload it properly.

    Looking forward to having you here at Hopkins shortly!
