MAALL Committees 2018-19

We are now forming committees for the 2018-19 MAALL year.

Please consider volunteering for one or more committees. You will help MAALL, which relies on its members to run, but you will also have an opportunity to develop relationships, skills and knowledge that will also help you. Please feel free to email Karen Wallace directly with any questions.
