Here’s an opportunity to learn more about ALSC!


Join the ALSC Board of Directors for an ALSC Community Forum in December. You have two opportunities to participate!

Attend the December ALSC Community Forum on Partnerships

[ALSC President Starr LaTronica] In December, the ALSC Board of Directors and ALSC President Starr LaTronica will be hosting two ALSC Community Forum live chats with a special emphasis on partnerships: how to create, grow, and sustain partnerships in the library.

The ALSC Liaisons to National Organizations Committee will provide discussion questions for the forum. In addition to the 45 minutes of discussion, these forums will include quick announcements from the ALSC Fall Division Leadership Meeting and a time for questions at the end.

Your two opportunities to join in the discussion are:

  • Monday, December 2 at 11am CT
  • Tuesday, December 3 at 3pm CT

ALSC Community Forums take place in Adobe Connect. The first ten minutes will include live audio from ALSC President Starr LaTronica but the rest of the conversation will include an opportunity for attendees to participate in live text-chat.
