Why did you join AALLc?

I started to attend AALL’s annual meeting as a library school student in July 2012. AALLc was the first AALL group that I had contact with. Our caucus members’ warmth, enthusiasm, and interest in helping others really struck a chord with me. I have remained as a loyal member ever since. In addition to having wonderful members, AALLc also organizes a business luncheon with delicious Asian food every year at AALL—how can I resist the temptation?
