You are cordially invited to ARLIS/NA MOQ Virtu*l, our second biannual meeting of 2020, which will be held virtually on the morning of Friday, December 11, 2020. Let us start the day at 9:00 am with an informal catch-up over a hot beverage of choice before formal business begins! The business portion of the meeting (10:00 am – 11:30 am) will include reports from the executive team and subcommittees, the launching of the MOQDOCâ€™s latest issue, voting in next yearâ€™s executive, and several points of discussion.Â
Have you been feeling a little Zoomed-out lately? Our mid-day activity is designed as a response to the screen fatigue reported by so many in our profession. In the spirit of taking a little time to â€œunplug,â€ members are encouraged to step away from screens and electronic devices in the afternoon. What does a moment or two or three to unplug look like for you in the middle of the work day? Following our mid-day moment or two or three of unplugging from electronic devices, we invite you to join us for an optional ARLIS/NA webinar on our parent organizationâ€™s committees and involvement opportunities (2:00 pm – 2:45 pm). ARLIS/NAâ€™s â€œCommittee Membership Information Sessionâ€ webinar has a registration link.Â
Please RSVP via the Google Form by Monday, December 7, 2020 in order to receive the agenda and Zoom links.
