Greetings AAAL members,
With snowstorms threatening and midterms looming it must be time for our AAAL Fall 2015 Meeting!
This year we will be meeting in Edmonton, at MacEwan University, City Centre Campus on Thursday, November 19. All events will take place in Room 9-207 (Robbins Health Learning Centre, 2nd Floor).
Thanks to the dedicated work of the AAAL Workshop Committee and members of the Executive, we have a busy day of networking and learning planned, including our AAAL business meeting in the morning, and a full slate of presentations in the afternoon. Lunch, as always, will be provided by the AAAL. We are excited to close the day with a keynote talk from Michael McNally, Assistant Professor at the U of A, about the role of academic libraries in the open educational resources (OER) movement.
For details, please see the draft agenda on the AAAL website at https://aaal.ca/events/.
Please register at http://tinyurl.com/aaalrsvp by November 10! Space is limited, so register early.
Special Resolution: Bylaw Amendments
As an added treat, this year we are also proposing a special resolution to amend the AAAL’s Bylaws. We will be voting on proposed bylaw changes at the upcoming meeting, and are distributing the details of proposed changes three weeks in advance as per our current bylaws. Feedback is invited on these changes – please respond by November 12. Detailed information will be distributed via the AAAL Listserv.
We look forward to seeing you at MacEwan University on November 19!
Robyn Hall and Sonya Betz, AAAL Co-Chairs
