Thanks to all who attended the *early* meeting at ARLIS/ NA this past Saturday morning. Based on comments made during the meeting and via paper surveys we collected, I wanted to post the following positions for which we’re seeking volunteers.
If you couldn’t make it on Saturday but would like to volunteer, please do! If you can think of any additional areas that you’d like to see ArLiSNAP pursue, also feel free to suggest other coordinator positions.
To volunteer or give feedback, please leave a comment to this post.
Discussion Coordinator: Promote group participation by posting discussion subjects of topical interest to ArLiSNAP members. Potential discussion topics might relate to art & design, copyright, education, etc.
Membership Coordinator: Create a directory with contact info, interests, and photos of members. Periodically post a ‘member spotlight’ feature with information about the activities of one of our members.
Mentorship Coordinator: Keep abreast of both ARLIS and outside mentorship opportunities that would be of interest to members. Post deadlines and pertinent information for potential applicants interested in matching up with a professional mentor.
Professional Development Coordinator: Post information about continuing education opportunities that might be of interest to young and new professionals, such as webinars, workshops, and non-ARLIS meetings or conferences.
Liaison Coordinator: Investigate how other student member groups within professional organizations are structured and funded. Brainstorm about how ArLiSNAP might increase its position within ARLIS/NA based on other organization’s models.
Site Administrator: Maintain and coordinate technical aspects of the ArLiSNAP blog. Keep up existing blog functionality as well as brainstorm on how to best present new content or features. Coordinate with co-moderators to arrange payment for continued domain and mapping services.
