Note from Virginia Ortiz-Repiso, EUChap Chair
ASIS&T Chapters and SIGs are collaborating on an ASIS&T presentation at the iSchool conference in Wuhan, China (March 22-25th). The Asian Pacific, European, European Student and Taipei Chapters, along with SIG III will all discuss their programs and how their activities closely support the iSchool concept. In addition we will discuss the value of ASIS&T membership and it’s close correlation to professional success. A raffle will be held at the presentation with prizes being five free ASIS&T membership, and refreshments will be provided by the Asian Pacific Chapter. If you’re attending the conference in Wuhan, make sure to attend this exciting collaborative presentation. The presentation will be held on Friday March 24th from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm at the Southern Lake, fifth floor.
All the best,

This was the first time an annual ASIS&T meeting was held outside of the U.S. or Canada.
