  8. 8. Things to Think About • There is no “OCLC Membership Culture” in the Middle East. How to sell this concept during the meetings? • Should NON-Members attend as well as Members? • The meetings must carry obvious VALUE for the attendees. • Should there be an OCLC product update? • A survey could help out in identifying the meetings content. • Meetings to be held in Arabic language (preferable). • Should local agents such AAS and Logos attend? Who else from OCLC should attend? • Responsibilities: Host institution? OCLC? • Costs: Travel – Hotel – Logistics, etc. 09/28/2011 EMEA Regional Meeting 8
