Last Monday some of us enjoyed hearing John LeMasney discuss the new social media tool “Pinterest” at Princeton University. For those of you who missed the meeting, our Web Master Nicole Engard has kindly posted her notes and links to the presentation.
Our next meeting will be held at Rider University in Lawrenceville on Wednesday, May 16 when Robert Lackie will provide information on Internet Security. Please try to join us!
In January, Louise Deis, our Program Chair and I enjoyed attending the SLA Leadership Summit in Atlanta, Georgia, where we met other chapter officers and discussed many interesting ideas for chapter activities. My brief article about the summit will be published soon in Library Hi-Tech News by Emerald Publishing (volume 29, issue 2) and I will post the link once it is available.
Our chapter will celebrate our 45th anniversary this year and I would like to organize an event to mark the occasion. We still need to formulate a small committee to work on details, so send me any ideas on theme, speakers or venues (email me at email@example.com) If you would like to help, let me know. We are hoping to hold a dinner sometime in either June or October.
The executive board will meet on April 11 for our first board meeting. Please send me any concerns, ideas or suggestions before that date so that we can add them to the agenda.
We still have several unfilled chair positions. If anyone is interested in volunteering to be chair of Employment, Archives, Continuing education, Public Relations or Sponsorship, contact me.
Don’t forget to register for the SLA Annual Conference which will be held in Chicago July 15-18 if you plan to attend.
The NJLA Conference will be held June 4-6 at the new Revel Hotel in Atlantic City, and they will extend member rates to our chapter members.
Enjoy the spring weather and beautiful flowers. I will report on the board meeting discussions in my next message, and I hope to see many of you at the meeting in May!
