About Monthly Member Forums

United for Libraries members are invited to a monthly member forum on the second Wednesday of each month at 2 pm eastern. All sessions will be recorded and posted in the members' only area of the United for Libraries website. Each month we'll feature a hot topic of interest to Trustees, Friends, and/or Foundations. A guest speaker will share highlights and information about the month's topic, followed by a Q&A with the speaker. At the half-hour mark, the format will switch to an open discussion among webinar participants. Sessions are open to all personal and group members of United for Libraries.
