Getting Involved and Conference Attendance for “Newbies”

The ACRL Blog has a piece about new members attending ALA’s Midwinter conference by Josh Petrusa titled “Attempt at Midwinter.”

In youthful naiveté, I assumed being a new member of the profession (and ALA) that I would just go to Midwinter, attend some stuff, get involved, etc.

There’s been some really good feedback in the Comments about whether section meetings are open to non-members, attending as many discussion groups as you want, and interacting with vendors.

See previous comments on ArLiSNAP about volunteering for ARLIS/NA committees, volunteering for Chapter committees, and volunteering at the conference registration desk.  If you have additional ideas, please add a comment below!
