MLA 2011 - Local Assistance Subcommittee Volunteers Needed


The annual meeting of the Medical Library Association will be held in Minneapolis, MN from May 13-18, 2011. Gabe Rios (University of Alabama) and Bart Ragon (University of Virginia) are the National Program Committee (NPC) co-chairs. One of the very important and fun components of any annual meeting is the Local Assistance Committee (LAC). Linda Watson (University of Minnesota) and Dawn Littleton (Mayo Clinic) are the LAC co-chairs.

This is a call for volunteers to serve as chair of one of the six subcommittees that make up the work to be done over the course of the next two years. The subcommittees are: Publicity and Promotion; Restaurant Guide; Library Tours; Meeting Blog; Hospitality Information Booth, and Volunteer Assistance.

This link will take you to a more detailed document with a rough idea of when the most intense work would be. Each subcommittee chair would be responsible for recruiting volunteers for their subcommittee. A reminder that subcommittee chairs need to be MLA members.

If you are interested in volunteering for one of the subcommittee chair positions, please let Linda Watson (lwatson@umn.edu) know by October 10, 2009.

FUN FACT: Three previous meetings in Minnesota were in 1936, 1976, 1986
