URISA Committee Coordination Meeting

Prior to 2014, we would scatter committee and division meetings throughout the conference program, but that means that many of URISA's great volunteers are unable to attend the educational sessions. So we have organized one big room so that all divisions can meet in small groups on Sunday afternoon and report their activities and needs to their colleagues and leadership, so everyone hears the same thing.

Interested members who wish to find out more about committee activities are also encouraged to attend to discover opportunities within the organization.
