ALIA SNGG Header Newsletters

Welcome to a new month.

This #GLAMRmatch 2024, we welcome & thank the 64 participants who sent us their survey responses and short bios.

Your bio’s will help the #GLAMRmatch team find a student, graduate, established, emerging or experienced professional to network with via a one-on-one physical/online chat.

 Due to the popularity of #GLAMRmatch a few participants will have online group meetings.

Booklovers join us this June in our #aliasnggbookclub What you are looking for is in the library read along.

Happy reading!
