For those going to 2009 ACRL National…
No trip to Seattle would be complete without partaking of the myriad of the city’s fine and fascinating restaurants. There is perhaps no more memorable dining experience than one that is shared. The Local Arrangements Committee for the ACRL National Conference Seattle 2009 invites you to bring these two principles together and volunteer to host a table for the Dinner With Colleagues program on Friday, March 13, 2009, in the 7pm to 9pm window.
The guests at your table could be members of a single committee or members from the same section. You could combine experienced members with new members and make it an occasion for orienting the newcomers to the association and its work. How about facilitating a group of student attendees getting together to meet one another, their future professional colleagues? Maybe organize a group around professional interests (ala Birds of a Feather), geography (state of birth), a particular cuisine, or an interest in wine or custom cocktails. Make it a group of friends, or be creative and make it a group of strangers who’ll become friends.
Please visit the Dinners With Colleagues page on the conference wiki for more information, including host responsibilities and a list of restaurants. If you would like to host a table, please email Jessica Albano.
