    • why aren't more people engaged in collaboration by joining AERN?

    • collaborating across professions – GLAM sector – what successes have individual institutions had in this area? Is this an area that the AAO should be exploring?
    • reflections on ACA’s upcoming joint-conference with ARMA
    • should we simply be looking at collaboration within our profession i.e corporate, government, university, etc.
    • what kind of collaboration should we be encouraging to strengthen the community?
