  • 1.  Trivia Championship update

    Posted Dec 21, 2023 08:27 AM

    Hello, folks - an update regarding the Trivia Championship:

    In discussion with RUSA and NMRT, we're looking to fold it together with the NMRT ALA Annual Social - it would follow immediately after, and would steer more people towards it, while still keeping the same time slot.  I think we can do it without the full A/V setup as well, which would save a huge amount of money.

    And best of all, SustainRT is willing to be a joint sponsor as well!
