a.A subcommittee was formed consisting of Marty, Jodie, and Cindy to work on the website.  A call for volunteers will be sent to hopefully solicit 2 more MACRL members to be on this committee. 

b.The website should incorporate elements that are working well on the wiki, to better inform the broader membership.


4.Open Letter to Public Libraries

5.MLA Conference 2010

a.Brent suggested that a conference coordinator for MACRL be identified, to take responsibility for managing proposals, feedback etc, to take the burden off of the president and to provide another opportunity for membership involvement.  A call for volunteers will be sent.


6.Recruitment Policy

a.Brent will draft a plan and send to the Leadership committee for feedback

b.The consensus opinion was that a personal approach is preferred rather than mass mailings, but logistics need to be examined.
