Professional Organization Committees #medlibs chat

The Medical Library Association (MLA) has a call out to members to sign up for a committee by the end of the month - but why would you want to do that when you can barely stay on top of your work committees?
Join the #medlibs discussion on Twitter Thursday at 9pm Eastern to explore more about what professional organization committee membership is (hint: different than work committees!) and how service on one can be beneficial for your career, professional development, and networking with others in the field. We will primarily focus on MLA but welcome discussion about other professional organizations' committee service, library-related or not.
The deadline to submit a request to join a 2016-17 MLA committee is October 31st (trick or treat?) and the application link is https://www.research.net/s/commapp2016 A list of the MLA Committees and their charges is available at http://www.mlanet.org/p/cm/ld/fid=440
