Virtual Executive/General Membership Meeting Midwinter 2011 San Diego?

Filed under: Executive Committee,Virtual Midwinter — ccovert @ 9:25 am

In Boston for the first time we held our Executive/General Membership Meeting virtually.

Shall we hold our 2nd virtual meeting or meet face to face?

If we meet virtually should we hold the Executive Committee/General Membership Meeting after the conference so that all our committees can meet before and be able to present?  Perhaps sometime during the week after the conference,  Jan 10, Mon – Jan 14, Fri at 1pm EST.

ACRL’s FAQ about virtual meetings:

Some important tips to remember:

  • Virtual meetings must be synchronous (using ALA Connect (, Skype, Second Life, etc; not email).
  • The following people are expected to attend Midwinter: Section Chair, Vice Chair, and Past Chair, Chairs of 2011 and 2012 Program Planning, and the Chair of Membership and Outreach.
  • Discussion Groups are not required to meet at Midwinter.
  • Minutes for virtual meetings are required to be submitted within 30 days of the meeting.
  • Virtual meetings locations/directions, etc need to be posted 10 days before the meeting.
The deadline to reserve a meeting room for Midwinter is less than a week away, Wednesday, Sept 22!  Please comment ASAP.
Thank you

  2. I’ll be at Midwinter. Ideally, I’d like to meet at least a few of you in person. I’m quite interested in getting more involved with ACRL Arts. At this point, I’m also planning on attending ACRL 2011.

    Thanks, Lisa
