Membership Advisory Group – April–August 2020 Report

The group met 0 times this reporting period.

Recent Activities

First Activity
The group held not face to face meetings due to the onset of COVID. In April, I split up and assigned the new membership list among the group members and Welcome emails were sent. I have no information on if all the members completed the task. I did reach out to my potion of the list and received a few thank you emails back.
Meets PLA’s strategic goals for Advocacy and Awareness

What will your group be working on for the next six months?
I'm currently no longer on the Connect group page so can't access the group. I've reached out to Samantha to explore the issue.

There will be no face-to-face planned due to most libraries having travel restrictions in place, including my library.

Does the group have any policy recommendations, ideas with financial impact, or other items to bring to the PLA Board for discussion or action

Do you have any suggestions for future products or resources (excluding conference programs) to be developed based on your group’s work?

Are there other PLA/ALA committees your group might collaborate with to benefit the work of all?

Have there been any issues related to meeting participation/attendance for any of the group’s members?

Is there anything PLA could have provided during this time that would have helped your group with its work?
Maybe a vaccine for the virus. 🙂 The restrictions of the virus is what has hindered our work, as it has everyone.

Thank you.
