Editor's Summary

ASIS&T president Diane Sonnenwald marks the start of 2012 by applauding the many ways the organization is helping the membership stay current with industry trends. Members are volunteering to promote the organization on numerous fronts, from Facebook to webinars to planning and volunteer recruitment for the 2012 Annual Meeting in Baltimore. ASIS&T membership renewals have been simplified with conditionally lower rates, including special rates for members in less developed countries, and there are proposals for holding future meetings in countries outside North America. Volunteers and headquarters staff work collaboratively on many aspects of meeting planning through the year and the variety of other activities that keep ASIS&T a vibrant organization. Members are encouraged to renew their memberships, take advantage of offerings, participate actively in the organization and provide their support as volunteers.
