The purpose of the Membership Promotion and Relations Committee is to promote membership in and a positive image of the New Members Round Table to NMRT members, librarians, library school students, and all other groups associated with the library profession.



**2006 - 2007 Project Description / Goals: 


·        Have contacted approximately 59 new members to welcome them to NMRT and will continue to do so as new member reports are received

·        Drafted and sent information to approximately 81 people who requested information about NMRT Committees in the 2006 NMRT Booth Survey at Annual.

·        Discuss with Footnotes committee a method of allowing new members to submit brief personal introductions to NMRT at large

·        Continue to pursue a survey of dropped members.  Develop way to reconcile reinstated members and dropped members to determine survey participants and work with NMRT web committee to develop an online form (possibly waiting until new ALA webpage technologies are available)

·        Work with John Chrastia of ALA membership, possibly including AL Direct articles on NMRT
