Sunday morning at Midwinter is time for the ALSC All Committee Meeting. This is when many of the wonderful “process” committees get together. Process committees are non-award committees, and include groups such as School-Age Programs & Services, Building Partnerships, and my committee, Membership. This morning at the Membership Committee meeting, we discussed our plans for Annual which include hosting the ALSC 101 session and the ALSC booth in the exhibit hall. We recapped the member dinner that we arranged in Seattle this past Friday night at Midwinter. We also had a rich conversation around how to engage and connect with not only new members, but members who have been in the association for a few years. We want ALSC to be a welcoming and inclusive organization for all, and hope to foster a sense of community among members. We’d love to hear from you! How long have you been an ALSC member? Are you involved in the organization in any way? How does your membership benefit you and your work? What ideas do you have for ways the Membership Committee can help create a sense of engagement and community?
