SIG Dutch-Treat Networking Dinners, Tuesday, Nov. 19,  7:00 pm (times may vary)
One of the most popular activities at ASIST meetings!!  Every
SIG will have a sign-up sheet for a networking dinner to be hosted by a local "expert" who will direct the night's discussion.  DTN Dinners are a terrific way to combine sampling Philadelphia's cuisine with sharing time with friends and colleagues, making new contacts, and discussing some of the hot topics in information science that most directly affect you.  When you arrive at the conference, you'll be able to sign up for the dinner (SIG) of your choice.  You don't have to be a member of that SIG to attend.  Every one who has participated in the networking Dinners has raved about them. (remember to sign up early - places are on a first-come, first-served basis).

Come see the lighter side of ASIST!  This alternative "SIG" acts out parody sketches for all to enjoy!
