Join the Discussion!

Over the next 12 months ALA leadership will be working with members, committees, divisions, round tables, chapters, and affiliates on the Association’s new strategic initiatives.  This community has been established so we can share our thinking with you and you can reflect, comment and contribute as we work through the process.  Here we will post relevant documents and updates as we engage in lively conversation about advocacy, information policy and professional and leadership development.  We need everyone's voice - so please join the discussion!

The file folder for this strategic planning community contains a number of key background documents. These include:

  1. An overview of the 1) advocacy, 2) information policy and 3) professional and leadership development strategic initiatives
  2. An overview of the planning process over the coming year, as well as discussion questions for committee, division, round table, chapter and affiliate discussions and forums

Hi JoAnne,

I work with the Digital Preservation Outreach and Education Program at the Library of Congress. The Library has over 80 registered ALA members on staff, so we represent a strong interest in ALA's future. I pulled together my team for a kitchen table conversation on professional development, and we'll be contributing something tomorrow.

All the best,
