Questions and Meet & Greet
Throughout the session, we will also have several current RDA members introduce themselves and talk a bit about their RDA experiences - the groups they belong to, what they like about RDA, what they find challenging, etc. You can then speak to them individually towards the end of the session.
If you have any specific questions or suggestions on what we should include in the session, please contact stefanie.kethers[at]ardc.edu.au.
