September 12, 2020 – Annual Meeting of AtMLA

The annual meeting of the Atlantic Chapter of the Music Library Association will be held on October 9, Eastern time, on the Zoom platform. A link to that meeting will be sent to those who pre-register.  Tentatively planned is an opening meet-and-greet, our annual business meeting, a series of discussion groups (in breakout rooms), and a social hour (BYO cocktails).  An e-mail announcing how to pre-register for the conference will be sent out in the next few weeks, so that we can send information on logging into the meeting.  Questions about the meeting can be sent to atmla.board@gmail.com.  See the Meetings page for more information.

Best,

Thom Pease, Winston Barham, and Beth Royall
