Spring program:

Resume reviewing will be offered for graduating MLS students.  Reviews will be conducted virtually in March 2018.  Reviewers need to be assigned (3 people will review 1 resume).  This is a good opportunity for graduating students to get advice and insight regarding their resume.

This spring the board will work on recruiting from members a committee to start planning the fall 2018 program.  This will free up the board to pursue other activities during the fall.
