This afternoon I got an email to inform me that my CILIP membership renewal has been approved. I had been absent for a few years, so I’ll have to get used to being a member of a professional organisation again.
Having been welcomed back via twitter already (without having realised that I had that email waiting for me) was lovely and made me feel special and looked after. Thanks, @johnrdolan. You made me smile 🙂
What happens next? Ideally, CILIP will send me an induction pack that guides me through getting involved and how to get the best out of my membership; and the email promised that I’d get something in the post, so there’s hope. And then my local branch and the two special interest groups I chose would contact and welcome me as well. Those are Public Libraries and Information Services, by the way.
I realise I’m not an easy customer to please but please guide me. (I also like to be entertained but can make my own entertainment if needed.)
Thanks to @CILIPinfo, by the way, who are always lovely and quick when I have a question!
