Do You Have Wiki-Worthy Information?

Consider adding appropriate articles to the new AALL wiki: Tools for Success. Any AALL member can register and contribute to the wiki. This would be great way to add content and promote the publication efforts of your members!

Chapter Leadership Training

For those new chapter leaders who recently joined our list and may not have seen last month's information on training, don't forget to block off Saturday, July 25th in your busy schedules for the Chapter Leadership programs at the 2009 AALL meeting in beautiful Washington, D.C. The presidents and vice presidents of each chapter are invited to participate in this day of a leadership and chapter planning. Roundtables on government relations, meeting management, and treasurer training will also be held at later dates during the meeting.
