During the?National Library and Information Technicians' Symposium 2017, there was a focus group discussion about what more ALIA could do to support our LT members. Ideas included:
- More LT-specific professional learning
- Encouragement for LTs to present at other ALIA conferences
- Continued support for the Diploma
- Advocacy with employers?
Following the Symposium, the ALIA Board asked the LT state representatives from NSW, QLD, VIC and WA to form a national Advisory Committee, commencing January 2018, to develop these ideas and a broader agenda.
