What is on your mind regarding our field besides strategies for not ruining your shoes with the thunderstormorific forecast in Austin for the Medical Library Association annual meeting? Are you packed and ready to go? 

Your #medlibs lead moderator Nikki Dettmar (@eagledawg) may or may not be on Twitter Thursday at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific time because she is freaking out big time with her second Masters graduation on Friday and has one final class meeting during our chat time. Please send quality reading material and chocolate. Never participated in a Twitter hashtag chat or #medlibs chat before?

Changes to MLA 2016 Meeting


Changes to the 2016 Annual Meeting
Thursday, May 7, 2015
9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific
Led by @krafty and @tlknott

The 2016 meeting will be in Toronto and will be a joint conference with CHLA-ABSC and the International Clinical Librarian Conference (ICLC).  This gives us the perfect opportunity to work with the conference structure and see where we can make some changes that better fit the needs of members.  The Futures Task Force listed several suggestions for changing the annual meeting.  So tune in to the chat this Thursday May 7, 2015 at 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern to learn about some of the changes that will be happening.  Also help us brainstorm any changes that we can work on for future meetings.  Just like Rome was not built in a day, planning a conference takes years. So some great ideas may take a while to get in the system but we are listening.
