ACRL MD Meeting – Agenda & Minutes

Webcast: November 16, 2-3:30pm
Connecting Pedagogies: Service Learning & Info Lit
St Mary’s, TU-Northeastern, UMUC
Sara will be in touch with each site contact person the day before the event. We’ll do follow-up promotions with each registrant as per our membership-drive plan.
MLA/DLA conference updates – Sara AG
All of our programs are set; all of the presenters’ forms are in.
We will have a silent auction basket, as we’ve done in the past. Sara will provide details later.
ACRL Recruitment Plan- any updates?
The webcast on Nov. 16 is the first part of our plan, which has as its goal 10 new members.
ACRL-hosted reception in Baltimore, March 22-25, 2017
We are reviewing spaces. CALD has offered money, and we will reach out to vendors, too, for sponsorship.
Winter Social – January/February (Duckpin Bowling: Stoneleigh Lanes, Date/Time tba)
Rather than a summer program, we want to have a summer meeting to engage in strategic planning. We want to invite ACRL members from Maryland who do not belong to MLA, and structure discussions so these librarians can give us their views on how to increase membership and participation in ACRL-MD. We want to come away from the meeting with goals and an action plan.
