|Wow, it’s already March. How did that happen?! 2018 is well under way and ALIA SNGG is busier than ever.
In addition to exciting PD and meet-ups, we’re looking ahead to conferences and other major events coming up this year. APLIC is happening in July/August and planning is underway for a New Grads Tweet-up like no other! Read ahead for more on that.
We’ll be updating this newsletter throughout the month, so please check back to find out what we’re up on online and in your state.
ALIA Students and New Graduates Group Social Media
On the blog, we’re featuring some awesome GLAM colleagues in our professional profiles series. We want to find out what helped these information professionals in their careers and hear their words of wisdom. If you’d like to be profiled, or know someone else who would, get in touch!
Join the ACT New Grads group on March 13 for a get-together to mark the beginning of the semester. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
“CATS” of APLIC – A Tweet-Up and Meet-Up with the ALIA Students and New Graduates Group
Are you attending the 2018 Australia Pacific Library and Information Conference? Daunted about networking and meeting new people? Let CATS of APLIC make this process a little bit easier.
#CATSofAPLIC or “Connect Achieve Together Socially” is a way for newcomers and seasoned professionals to meet informally and connect with some amazing GLAMRzons! Keep an eye out for the hashtag #CATSofAPLIC from @ALIANewGrads on Twitter for fun daily activities designed to connect you with fellow delegates in-person and online and to discuss hot topics and ideas from the conference.
For more information visit the APLIC website.
