Call for Volunteer Judges
(in person and virtual)
2017 PR Xchange Awards Competition
sponsored by the PRMS Section of LLAMA

We are seeking experts in marketing, graphic design, and communications. We are seeking those who are employed in libraries and in the commercial world. We are meeting on Sunday April 2, 2017 from 12:00pm-6:00pm at a home residence (with a cat) in New York City in the Union Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The residence is next to many major subway stops. Details on the address and directions will be sent out in March 2017. Judges cannot submit materials to the competition as that would be a conflict of interest.

You will be *very* well nourished throughout the day with coffee, juice, soda, snacks, fruit, and an elaborate Whole Foods (vegan) Party Platter, courtesy of ALA LLAMA. Please contact Mark Aaron Polger at if you are interested in volunteering your time in person or virtually.
