New South Wales – 2017 Meet and Greet: Event Wrap-Up


The NSW ALIA Students and New Graduates Group had their first gathering for 2017 the location in Coco Cubano, Campbelltown was ideal especially the decor! We were sitting in a room with leather reading chairs surrounded by books. The weather could not dampen the mood inside and we had lots of laughter and stories to share.

This gathering was an excellent opportunity for future information professionals to meet and network over delicious food and drinks.  Diana Richards, ALIA NSW State Manager, met and spoke to each attendee and informed them of all the services a member of ALIA can access.  She handed out information with easy instructions and the links to different pages on the ALIA website.

We believe this event was successful and are looking forward to planning the next event after NLS8.
