November 2016 Board Meeting

In a couple of weeks, we’ll be meeting again at the Pasadena Public Library for our second board meeting for 2016-2017. We hope you can join us.

Last month, we had a heart-to-heart discussion about what LACASIS&T meant to us and why or how we should keep it going. We had a great mix of members who attended including veteran members who have been with the Los Angeles chapter for more than 15 years to recent MLIS graduates.

The meeting is rather small, but let us know if you’ll be attending via Facebook or the form below.
