[Ed. note: Highlights from the fall committee report to the Executive Board.]

Marla Chesler and Tina Feick, Co-Chairs

Bob Boissy and Zac Rolnic researched institutional membership options at several other organizations. They wrote a report with recommendations for the Executive Board.

The Executive Board asked our committee to look at the Facebook page that was created for NASIG. Several of our committee members joined the group, but since we decided to informally watch the group rather than try to impose any kind of NASIG rule. The mentor group does feel that the Facebook page may be useful for the mentors/mentees at the next conference.

Many of the committee members volunteered to be mentors at the annual conference in Louisville.

The committee reviewed the current list of Institution Types listed on the current membership database and the NASIG job descriptions listed on the evaluation forms. We suggested some additions and modifications to the lists to be added to the database.

We investigated the cost of renting a table at ALA (6ft table for $700.00). We decided that it would be more cost effective and more productive to actively visit vendor booths rather than sitting in a single place waiting for people to walk by.
