AGIIG at CLA 2010 Edmonton, June 2-5.

I would like to update you on three AGIIG conference activities at CLA 2010, June 2-5 in Edmonton, AB.

A difference from previous years is that we will attempt a meeting prior to the CLA Interest Group Breakfast meeting.  We never have enough time at the breakfast meeting, to get through issues., such as the DSP committee minutes see  As well, we should discuss CLA’s announcement about changes to the association, at:

  1. Thursday June 3, 7:00 am to 8:00 am – AGIIG Interest Group Meeting – roundtable discussion  moderated by the Co-conveners to identify issues and actions to carry forward to the Interest Group Breakfast meeting.   Issues for possible discussion:  liaison with other CLA committees and interest groups, the Olga B Bishop Award (an AGIIG award not awarded for a number of years), 2010-2011 AGIIG activities, Infodep-l emails that alert us to the disappearance of federal publications.


  1. Friday June 4, 7:30- 8:30 , CLA Interest Group Breakfast Meeting.  Members of the CLA Executive visit the interest groups at this meeting.
