[Ed. note: The following is excerpted from the fall report to the Executive Board.]
Kelli Getz, Co-Chair
- CEC Program for NASIG 2010: A tentative proposal for a program on Open Source ILS models for NASIG 2010 sponsored by the CEC is in the developmental stages. Clint Chamberlain will be putting together a program on the same topic for ALA Annual next year, and he has a few speakers to recommend.
- Unconferences: Members of the CEC will be contacting regional groups throughout the year to see if any possible NASIG/regional group unconferences are possible. Apryl Price has contacted members of the Serials Interest Group for All Libraries in Oklahoma about possible plans for an unconference and is awaiting a response. Others will be targeting groups in New England, the Southeast, the Midwest, Texas, and the west coast.
- Webinars: The CEC discussed the possibility of doing a series of webinars. Clint Chamberlain will be doing a webinar in September for NISO, so he will be informing the committee on his experience.
- Preconferences: Kelli Getz and Clint Chamberlain are currently in discussions with various TLA groups to hopefully get a joint NASIG/TLA pre-conference set up for TLA 2010.
