IV. Old Business
Planning for Upcoming Programs:
We reminisced about past service projects as a possibility to repeat the same projects during current term. Organizing thematically books for the Lincoln Park Methodist Church seemed as a good possibility. Michael will check if they need our help again. In the past, we helped Jefferson Library to move to their new location. Stephanie mentioned that Pellissippi State Community College is building a new library. She will ask if there will be a possibility to help.
Social Events Planning:
Report on the Smokies Baseball game. It was fun. Discussion followed on how to
better promote this event to improve the attendance. Also, Rothrock Dinner and other social events could have a better participation. The TLA digest listserv was discussed as a possible venue.
Plan for Fall Hike. All members agreed on October 14th at 10:30 a.m. for the
Fall Hike in the Ijams Nature Center.
Open discussion on Fall events (bowling?, dinner/movie?).
I do not have in my notes, if we discussed it, please update me on it (Wanda).
Planning for the 2018 Rothrock Dinner.
Diane Kelly, the new director of the University of Tennessee School of Information Sciences (SIS) was proposed as a guest lecturer. Amy will ask Dianne and report on that. We discussed again how to improve enrollment and the possibility for students’ enrollment. Matt suggested we could contact the Student President (I need clarification here) and invite them for membership participation and/or attending the Rothrock Dinner.
