It’s Official!

Good news! Yesterday, we received word that the VLA Executive Committee reviewed our petition and voted via email to approve the formation of the NMRT Forum effective immediately!

From VLA President Matt Todd:

The Committee were particularly impressed by the petition and the number of signatories, and applaud the enthusiasm and commitment represented there.  I and the other members of the Executive Committee look forward to working with you and we are eager to see what exciting new initiatives will arise from the NMRT Forum.

In accordance with the VLA Manual, Matt Todd appointed Megan Hodge VLA NMRT Chairperson until the forum can meet to organize itself and elect leadership. Congratulations to Megan, and to all of us for achieving our goal of having an NMRT forum officially recognized within the Virginia Library Association!

Thank you all so much for your support and enthusiasm in helping get this group off the ground.  We will be communicating more information over the next few weeks and months as the group gets off the ground, so please continue to pass along the link to our blog (https://vlanmrt.wordpress.com/) and other related information.
