    Good morning. Cathy Martyniak here, with her CORE Storage Interest group Chair hat on. Hope you all are doing well.


    It has been a busy Fall for me so have not been able to do much for this group. I will try to do better in the Spring.


    The ALA CORE sign up to reserve a meeting rooms for us at the ALA Annual (Chicago, June 22nd to 27th)  will be coming up in January. We have not met in person the last few years due to COVID. I am wondering if I should go ahead and reserve us a room, and hope that 1) the Annual meeting is held and 2) enough of us show up to have a decent discussion.


    So, I would love to hear back from members of this group:


    1.       Do you think you will go to Chicago?

    2.       If you did go, would you willing to participate in an person meeting of the CORE Storage interest group?

    3.       If we had enough interest in an in person meeting, and we decide to reserve a room, is Sunday afternoon still our preferred time?


    Happy to get any and all feedback.

    Hi Cathy,

    I'm planning to attend annual this summer, and I think it would be great to have a meeting in person if we have the interest. Sunday afternoon works for me.

    Thank you!

    I am still deciding whether I'll attend. That said, if I do go I'd love to participate and Sunday afternoon would work.

    Caia plans to be in Chicago and we are looking forward to seeing everyone's smiling faces in person once again. We also like keeping Sunday as the appointed day for our meeting.


    Hope you all remain happy and healthy through the holiday season and beyond!
