This evening’s post is going to be a quickie so I can get it out there before launching my weekend (yay!). There has been some chat here and there today about how effective SAA’s orientation session for new attendees was this year, and I’d love to hear some specifics about how we could keep improving it. I’m getting a clear sense that the bottom line is … the more interactivity, the better.
Some great ideas are in this thread from a year ago on the blog where the fervor built for establishing SNAP, the Students and New Professionals Roundtable (which will have its first birthday in January–and what a great first year the group has had). Read it and leave a comment with more ideas, please. Or get in touch directly with the leaders of SAA’s Membership Committee, whose job includes making new members feel welcome, among much else.
Tell us what you need! We’re listening. Closely.
