Invitation to attend a NISO session at ALA Midwinter Cynthia Hodgson 10 Jan 2007 14:32 UTC

This year at the American Library Association Midwinter meeting in Seattle,
the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) will hold more
informal and interactive meetings with two days of small discussion sessions
to elicit the community's direct input on key issues.

Join Todd Carpenter, NISO Managing Director, in a discussion of four main
topics: (1) Membership expansion and recruitment, (2) Committee structure,
(3) Technology and infrastructure, and (4) NISO's Education and publication

Attendees are encouraged to come with their own questions or ideas about
NISO's programs for discussion. This is a genuine opportunity to participate
in the strategic changes that NISO intends to make. Please attend and voice
your priorities, concerns, and creative solutions.

NISO has arranged eight opportunities for you to participate. The one and
one-half hour sessions will occur on January 21 and 22 at the Summerfield
Suites, the Ward Room on the 2nd floor, at: 8:30 - 10:00, 10:30 - 12:00,
2:00 - 3:30, and 4:00 - 5:30. Light refreshments will be provided.
