March 2003 (Greensboro): "At 10:00am, we began the first of hopefully many great BLINC meetings with 14 business professionals attending. What a great start!" (from the minutes). Introducing ourselves; our specialties. What this group could do. Sharing favorite research tools. BLINC's next steps? Let's meet quarterly for workshops, sharing, etc. Communicating through Blackboard.
October 2019: NCLA biennial conference in Winston-Salem: BLINC provide four programs, a vendor-sponsored fancy dinner, and a vendor-sponsored happy hour at a brewery.
