The Membership Committee has recently merged with the New Members Committee! The merge was approved at the August 2023 Executive Board meeting. The committee chairs of Membership and New Members felt that the interests of the two committees aligned, and that a combined group would help maintain a more active committee. The merge also helped address some confusion about the purpose and make-up of the New Members Committee after its transition from Roundtable to Committee.

If you have questions about NDLA membership, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Join us for monthly Water Cooler Chats with the Professional Development Committee!

These virtual "water cooler chats" will take place via Zoom monthly on the 3rd Monday at 1pm and 3rd Wednesday at 4pm. These casual sessions will range from roundtable discussions to committee presentations to crowdsourcing conference proposals and beyond. We envision these as informal sessions to spark conversation, share ideas, and network with fellow ND librarians.

Upcoming Water Cooler dates:

  • July 15 at 1pm
    • Mindfulness and de-stressing at work
  • August 19 at 1pm
    • Come chat with members of the EDI Committee
  • September 16 at 1pm
    • Workshop your conference presentation

Have something to bring to the water cooler? Don't hesitate to reach out to either the Membership or Professional Development Committee co-chairs.
