dc.descriptionThis poster was presented at the 2016 Joint Meeting of the Medical Library Association and the Canadian Health Sciences Library Association in Toronto CA in May 2016. Objective: After successfully planning a meeting of multiple MLA chapters, the authors share the lessons they learned from their experience. Methods: After reviewing successes and failures of their multi-chapter meeting, the authors used Survey Monkey to gather the opinions and advice of other multiple chapter meeting planners. The authors then identified key activities and time-sensitive tasks necessary to planning such a meeting. Results: From this amalgam of information, they created a checklist designed to help future planners, whether for individual or multiple chapter meetings. This checklist also includes a recommended timeline for when essential milestones should be reached. Conclusions: Holding a multi-chapter meeting, while a daunting task, can be beneficial to chapters and attendees. A vetted planning checklist, along with strong communication, skills with shared decision-making, and effective record-keeping are key components for success.
