Co-Coordinators: Joan M. Benedetti and Margaret Webster

The first meeting of the brand new Retired Members SIG will be a lively discussion of retirement and ways to stay involved organically in ARLIS/NA.  Are we "dinosaurs"?  Can participation in ARLIS/NA keep us current?  What will we continue to care about?  What can the ARLIS/NA organization do to reach out to us?  What do we have post-retirement to offer our colleagues?  How can we contribute to ARLIS/NA? Of course the answers to these questions will be different for each of us. 

 The meeting's agenda will include time to briefly introduce ourselves to each other and to talk about possible projects that could be sponsored by us.  Eric Wolf, Chair, ARLIS/NA Documentation Committee, will speak about how we can help the Documentation Committee to "better understand the history of both ARLIS as an organization and the profession itself.”  Do we want to plan something special for the 2017 New Orleans conference?  Should it be something retirement-related or something that might appeal to a wider range of ARLIS/NA members?  And what can we do in between conferences?

 Our inaugural meeting is scheduled for 7 – 8 am, but we may stay for further discussion until 8:30.  Come to meet and greet long-time and new friends; stay to help us figure out our ARLIS/NA future!
