*“What’s on Your Mind: How can ALCTS serve New Members”*

In anticipation of our first meeting at ALA Midwinter, we are opening up
the forum to discuss how we can better serve ALCTS New Members.

Do you have ideas about how ALCTS serves new members? Have you been
thinking of new or established ways to interact with ALCTS?

How are you communicating with fellow members and colleagues?
ALAConnect, Facebook, twitter, etc… Many of you have shown an interest
in mentoring opportunities; tell us how we can help? The ANMIG is an “
Open” group, so tell us who you would like to collaborate with outside
of your area of expertise?

*We want to hear from you!

*We are encouraging new members to come and be heard. Share your values,
interests, and concerns. *
