Membership Development Committee – September 2019 Report

The group met 0 times this quarter.

Recent Activities

First Activity
Separate phone meetings were held with the past-chair and Vice Chair for planning purposes. Current committee membership were messaged requesting a response to a Doodle poll for establishing a consistent monthly meeting date/time. Committee working documents were updated. The committee's first zoom meeting will be in October. LITA staff were contacted to confirm our committee's "happy hour budget" for the year, and an initial list of locations has been suggested for Philadelphia.

Second Activity
After follow up with LITA staff and the past chair I will be reaching out to the new leadership of CAM to gauge the level of involvement they desire for moderating LITAchat in the upcoming year.
Meets LITA’s strategic goals for Education and Professional Development

What will your group be working on for the next three months?
The MDC's immediate work will be: (1) planning for happy hour in Philadelphia, (2) establishing a topics roster for the 2019-2020 LITAchat series, and (3) confirming if and planning the 101 Open House recording for Midwinter.

Is there anything LITA could have provided during this time that would have helped your group with its work?
It would have been nice to receive a confirmed committee roster and budget for the year.
