MLA 2011 – Minneapolis, MN

Facilitators & Recorders Needed!

The Roundtables Committee is looking for volunteers to share their ideas, experiences, and skills as a facilitator or a recorder for the Roundtables on Sunday, May 15, 2011 from Noon – 2 p.m. The Roundtables provide an opportunity to meet with your colleagues to share experiences and to discuss mutual professional concerns and chapter activities.

Although experience in a topic is not necessary, enthusiasm is! So if you are passionate about a topic and would like to share that enthusiasm with others, please consider volunteering. Duties for facilitators include: initiating discussion and encouraging participation. Duties for recorders include: documenting the discussion for posting on the Chapter Council website. Facilitators and recorders earn one AHIP point for completing these activities.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email Angela Dixon at <>.
