General Membership Discussion Group


Purpose

To discuss topics of current interest relating to the acquisition, organization and use of European materials. 

The Member-at-Large of the ESS Executive Committee has responsibility for organizing its meetings. This responsibility includes choosing a topic for discussion, publicizing it if possible in the WESS Newsletter, and leading the discussion.

The Member-at-Large of ESS presides over the General Membership Meeting, held at each ALA convention, generally on the final Monday. The first part of the meeting is devoted to business, leaving the last one to one-and-a-half hours for discussion.
