One of the things discussed at the August Board Meeting was the proposed New Members Round Table for TLA. I am happy to report that it passed!
A new member is defined as someone who's been in TLA for 10 years or less. People joining TLA for the first time will automatically be members of NMRT for their first year, free of charge.
The group who worked on the bylaws nominated Sue Maszaros of Belmont University to be the chair of this round table this year, with Jennifer Novia serving as vice chair. I know they'll both bring good ideas and energy to the inaugural year of NMRT!
