    Yes if you aren't going to make it, please cancel now. That way, we can refund you and someone else can sign up. Meetup.com no longer has the waiting list feature :(

  • Alison, MLIS, L.

    Please, anyone who's on the fence about attending - change your RSVP sooner than later. Down to the last few hours is too late for waitlist people to take advantage of the opp. Thanks much.
