Thanks for taking the lead on this Sharon! Much appreciated. I wasn’t at the meeting (had a rep from California Library Association & the CA State Library there instead) but I am happy to help out. We have a Zoom account if you need someone to organize that aspect for our first meeting, as long as it’s not during our Annual Conference (Oct 23 - 26).

Hi, All, 

I am happy to create the Doodle poll since one hasn't come out yet.  (In fact, I realize that I am not even sure who offered!  It may be that it wasn't a state coordinator?)

I'll put one together today to send  and see if we can find a recurring date that works.  We said every other month, right?  So that would be Oct, Dec, Feb, April, June, and given that we are now at 9/19 we should hop to!

All—I have added a few more things to this document. Everyone did such a great job with this that I didn’t have much to add.


I look forward to our first virtual meeting. Please let me know if there is anything you would like me to do to help get this set up.

Thx for putting these notes up, Karen.  I added a few notes to the doc.  I wonder is everyone could take a look and add any other notes they have?  


Would the person who volunteered to do the Doodle poll pls email me?  I can send you a good model to follow from a poll I just received for bimonthly virtual.meetings of an ALA committee I serve on.
