SSAWW at ALA 2015

Reposted from ssaww-l:

SSAWW hopes to see many of our members at ALA, especially at our two panels and the business meeting (listed below).

Please encourage potential members to attend the business meeting. You do not need to be a current dues-paying member to attend the meeting. The ALA panels will be a great warm up to our conference in Philadelphia: Nov. 4 – 8, 2015, The Sheraton Society Hill (details: https://ssawwnew.wordpress.com/2015-conference/). 

If the membership has any proposed agenda items to address at SSAWW’s ALA business meeting, please send them to me (Kristin Jacobson): jacobsok@stockton.edu.

Best, Kristin
