Hello from your RIPS Executive Board! We are gearing up for our June Virtual Business Meeting. Both the Executive Board and our amazing RIPS Committees have been working on a number of wonderful projects this year, and we can’t wait to share all the goings-on with you. Mark your calendars now! The business meeting will be held on June 21st at 1:00PM CST. Follow our Twitter account for sneak peaks at some of the projects our committees will be sharing details about during the business meeting.
We know the value of seeing each other in person, so we are still holding an in-person “RIPS Meet n’ Greet” on Monday, July 17th from 4:00-5:00PM. It’ll give us a chance to share ideas and catch up with old friends. In our survey asking what you’d like to do in Austin, the majority of people were hoping for topic-specific tables where you can discuss topics of interest to RIPS members. Members suggested topics including: teaching and assessment; student academic success support/bar exam support & other innovative staffing initiatives; reference and collection development; and patron services. We’ll also have a few open tables for those of you who just want to chat!
To incentivize you to attend both the virtual meeting and the meet n’ greet, we’ll be holding a giveaway. Look out for more details on that from our PR Committee in the coming weeks!
Hope to see you online and in Austin!
