This past year the CALL Meetings Committee was responsible for organizing four business meetings and creating four post-meeting member satisfaction surveys. Committee members included Stacia Stein, Kara Dunn, Deb Denslaw, and Larissa Sullivant, with Beth Schubert and Jesse Bowman serving as co-chairs and Julie Pabarja acting as liaison.
The four business meetings were held in September, November, February, and May. The May meeting extended an invitation to local library school students to attend free of charge. Below is a brief overview of each meeting. The Vice President was responsible for obtaining the speakers and sponsors.
