We hope you had a blast last week at the 2011 Virginia Library Association Annual Conference! We enjoyed meeting you, and want to invite you to become a full-fledged member of the Virginia Library Association!
As a VLA member, you will be connected with the strongest network of information professionals within the Commonwealth of Virginia. In addition to receiving the Association’s quarterly journal, Virginia Libraries, VLA members also gain access to the VLA listserv, support for library advocacy and professional development, and opportunities to serve as VLA committee or Council members. Furthermore, if you join VLA by November 14, 2011, you will be entered into a drawing to win a Kindle Fire, the new Amazon tablet that won’t even be released until November 15, 2011! You will be entered into this drawing if you attended VLA 2011, are currently not a member of VLA, and join VLA by November 14, 2011. This is a one-time offer and will not be offered again, so take advantage of it now!
When you join VLA, please consider joining the VLA New Members Round Table (NMRT) Forum. This group’s mission is to help new and emerging information professionals become actively involved in the Virginia Library Association and surrounding community, and the NMRT Forum is a great place to start your involvement with VLA. Check out our blog (https://vlanmrt.wordpress.com), and our Twitter stream (http://twitter.com/#!/vlanm) to keep up with the exciting events and opportunities sponsored by VLA NMRT Forum.
Finally, if you haven’t already, please fill out the overall conference evaluation for VLA 2011. With your help, we can make VLA 2012 even BETTER (if that’s possible).
If you have any questions about joining VLA or what VLA can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask. You can contact VLA’s Executive Director, Lisa Varga (firstname.lastname@example.org), VLA NMRT Forum Chair Megan Hodge (email@example.com) or VLA Membership Chair Rebecca Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions, comments, or suggestions.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Megan Hodge, Rebecca Miller, and Lisa Varga
