Goals, Objectives, Projects completed (including, but not limited to, any procedures, tip sheets, checklists, etc. created during the reporting year):


The Student Reception Committee's charge is to coordinate and hold a reception for library school students, where they are able to meet representatives from ALA's divisions and roundtables. In addition to the networking aspect, the Student Chapter of the Year Award is presented.


The committee publicized the event through Footnotes, the library school list-servs, newlib, nexgenlib, and the NMRT discussion lists. We invited representatives from every part of ALA to attend, and have over 30 representatives confirmed to be at the event. The committee completed our catering menu as well. Also, the committee worked with SASCO and the Student Chapter of the Year Award committee to coordinate our tasks.



Action Items/Issues To Be Resolved What plans/projects remain which will be carried over or postponed until next year? Have there been any substantial changes in plans requiring a reconsideration or cancellation of projects? Information regarding such will be helpful for future chairs and planners.


The event will be held at 6:30 on Sunday June 25, 2006 during ALA. During that time feedback forms will be distributed at the event for future planning purposes. These will be compiled by the Student Reception Chair for the future Student Reception Committee to aide in their planning. Once those are compiled, all 2005/2006 Student Reception Committee work will be completed.
