Late last year, NAGARA sent out a survey gauging member's interest in creating and participating in Affinity Groups. Affinity Groups are a collection of people linked by a common interest or purpose and can be a great way to meet other NAGARA members passionate about the same topics!
Over 100 members completed the survey which reflected great enthusiasm. The NAGARA READI Committee offers thanks to those who took the survey and invites all members to review the survey results.
Affinity Groups will have their official kick off meeting on the evening of July 14th at the 2022 NAGARA Annual Conference in Salt Lake City. The READI Committee will work to make this launch a hybrid event, so whether or not you plan on attending the in-person conference, members will be able to participate.
To get Affinity Groups off to a great start, the READI Committee is also seeking volunteers to serve as leads of these groups. Affinity Group leaders would help with meeting scheduling, facilitating group conversation, and reporting back any ideas and questions to the READI Committee. NAGARA will provide Affinity Groups with a virtual meeting platform, assistance with guidelines and structuring meetings, and a dedicated space to communicate on the CommunityChat Forums. If you are interested in volunteering, e-mail [email protected] for more information.
Stay tuned for more information!
