Last night’s YALSA sponsored chat, What’s Your YALSA New Year’s Resolution, was a lively discussion about YALSA member groups, what makes an Interest Group and Interest Group, what makes a Discussion Group a Discussion Group, YALSA publishing opportunities, and the process for getting involved in the Association.
The chat was facilitated by myself, YALSA President, and Kim Patton, YALSA President-Elect. It was good to have the opportunity to answer member, and potential member, questions about the organization.
The transcript of the chat is available and you can read through to learn more about getting involved in the Association. If you have questions about the committee appointment process contact Kim Patton. If you have questions about getting involved in YALSA outside of committee membership, feel free to contact me.
YALSA chats are held the first Wednesday of every month. The next chat is scheduled for Wednesday, February 3, 2010, 8 to 9 PM Eastern, and the topic is Defending Your Teen Services Budget. The monthly echats are a part of YALSA’s First Wednesdays with YALSA initiative. You can read more about it on the YALSA web site.
