Looking for a few good librarians

Are you looking for a way to help out ArLISNAP?
I got good feedback from the ArLiSNAP meeting in Toronto about creating the following positions within ArLiSNAP:

  • chapter liaison → volunteer would routinely collect information about different events, developments, and discussions going on in ARLIS/NA regional chapters throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico and disseminate that information to ArLiSNAP members via the blog and other social media outlets
  • student group liaison → volunteer would create and maintain a list of active ARLIS/NA-affiliated (or aligned) student and young professionals throughout the ARLIS/NA zones. list would be part of a retooled reference section on the ArLiSNAP website, which would include refreshed links
  • education liaison → volunteer would focus on highlighting various educational opportunities (workshops, webinars, symposium, conferences) that could appeal to the ArLiSNAP membership and sharing that via the blog and our other social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn)
  • member-at-large → would report on current events that would be pertinent to the ArLiSNAP membership including developments in policy within ARLIS/NA, legislation, new services, etc.

If you are interested in any of these positions, please email Stephanie or myself or comment below.
Stephanie and I would definitely be there to support/assist/collaborate with our liasons.

Elections Extension?

Well, the plan was to hold elections this week via Survey Monkey.  But, we’ve had a few questions about why elections are held before the meeting.  Some folks feel like they’d like to participate in a meeting before jumping in as a new co-moderator.

So, before we open elections, Megan and I wanted to see if there was a general feeling as to whether we should put them off until May.

Here’s some food for thought:

  • Putting elections off would make it possible for candidates to meet other members in Denver
  • But, not all those interested in leadership will be able to make it to the annual conference
  • One of the unique things about ArLiSNAP has been that all of our activity isn’t concentrated at the annual meeting, which makes us more accessible to students and young professionals who might not have support to travel to the conference.

Please post your thoughts in the next day or two so we can make a final decision on the possibility of delaying the election.
