What will your group be working on for the next three months?
If the proposal is accepted, there will be discussion on this.

Is there anything LITA could have provided during this time that would have helped your group with its work?
For membership renewals, I wonder LITA can send a call on the general listserv if an IG wants to be listed? Some ALA member supporters are ineligible to sign the petition because they haven’t yet signed up for LITA at time of renewal. As seen with other divisions, it would be helpful to have the IGs listed as people renew their general ALA membership. Just ideas 🙂

Additional comments or concerns:
Special thanks Mark and Jenny for their guidance so far!
