Dear GLD Members,
As you know, there has been a recent change in division leadership. The GLD is also welcoming several new volunteers on the Leadership Council.
We would like to introduce ourselves and our new LC members and share our ideas for events and activities for the coming year. And of course, we want to solicit your input and suggestions for both our ongoing activities and for next year’s ATA Annual Conference in Miami (October 25 to 28, 2023)..
We cordially invite you to attend a meeting of all members on Zoom on December 6, 2022, at 5:00 pm CET. You can find the Zoom link in the “Files” section of the GLD listserv or can request the link by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are not already a GLD List subscriber, we strongly encourage you to join (https://ata-divisions.org/GLD/gld-list/). It’s our main platform for connecting with other GLD members and staying on top of division events and news. And be sure to check our GLD website for more in-depth information on our activities and read our member-penned blog. (https://ata-divisions.org/GLD/)
We look forward to seeing you on December 6. Who knows, maybe Nikolaus will join us too!
Karen and Robin
