Greetings from Indiana! We’re in full swing preparing for next year’s annual ARLIS/NA conference to be held in Indianapolis on April 16-21, 2009. If you haven’t yet seen it, the conference web site is now online.
Going along with the conference’s theme of start your engines, we need to get revved up about the pub crawl. We’re looking for someone local to Indy who can:
– figure out a logical and easily locatable meeting place
– plan us a route of pubs to crawl (including one with food…)
– get word of the event out to any and all who might be interested
We’ve also been thinking about how we might use ArLiSNAP to promote events where our readers could get together and meet face-to-face. To this end, we’d like to put out a call for a Connections Liaison (or two) to take up the responsibility of distributing info about opportunities for getting together. These might include:
– announcements of local ARLIS/NA chapter or student group meetings
– info on continuing education opportunities or lectures
– any other info on events that would facilitate us getting to know one another on a greater frequency than once a year.
We’re glad for any and all volunteers for either the Pub Crawl Organizer or Connections Liaison positions, so just leave a comment if you think you might be interested.
