Chapter Council Presents Sharing Roundtables

Sunday, May 20, 2012
Noon – 2 p.m.
MLA 2012 – Seattle, WA

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 20, 2012 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
