MDMLG Mini-Meeting Topic: Library Promotion and Marketing

Greetings members of MDMLG!

The MDMLG Program and Professional Development Committee invites you to attend our first ever "mini-meeting," an informal gathering around a specific topic, on Wednesday, February 21st at 1pm via Zoom. We hope to see you there!

Please use this link to attend:

Hosted by MDMLG President Elizabeth Bucciarelli, this month's mini-meeting will focus on library promotion and marketing. Please feel free to prepare comments and questions related to the topic ahead of the mini-meeting—all are welcome!

Mini-meetings will be a way for MDMLG membership to meet in between General Business Meetings and hold a casual conversation about a pre-specified topic. Our aim is to offer opportunities for MDMLG members to connect more regularly and learn from other members in a manner more casual than a business meeting.

Please let Steven Moore know if you have any questions.

Steven J. Moore

Chair, Program and Professional Development Committee
