NMRT Orientation Committee


The orientation committee plans and conducts orientation programs at both the Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference. The two-hour Saturday morning orientations at both conferences provide attendees and introduction to ALA, NMRT, the conference, the exhibits, and the host city. Additionally, the program provides the opportunity for other ALA divisions and round tables to distribute literature and promote their organizations. The additional one-hour program held on Friday afternoon at annual focuses on the conference experience. It introduces attendees to NMRT and also offers literature provided by ALA divisions and round tables.
