When did you last review it with your committee? Note: Recommendations for changes should be submitted to Organization & Bylaws. : September 15 Reporting Period
Summarize work accomplished, decisions reached, and follow-up action needed (objectives, timetable, and assignments) since your last report. Please remember not to include confidential or sensitive information.*: MidWinter Meeting 2017- 

Discussed and further refined the "Light the Way" grant application and decision rubric. Rewrote sections of the application and discussed how to weigh the criteria used in the decision rubric. Discussed the importance of following up with grant winners to showcase their projects and services for the purpose of sharing their good work and to recognize Candlewick for their generosity. Candlewick's grant has a remarkable impact on the under-served, the recipients, and their community. The newly revamped application will include a blog article expectation which will give the grantee an opportunity to share their progress.

Determined ALSC blog schedule and the topics that we intend to cover over the upcoming months. 

Planned monthly communication between committee members using google hangout meetings and/or email to accomplish committee goals.

Long-term goals were briefly discussed, including developing blog topics, videos and other tools to better inform and help address issues that impact under-served children and their caregivers in library communities.

Action Items: 

Update all web-page and other information to reflect our Committee Name Change. 

Follow-up with past grant winners to receive an update and blog article detailing their progress. 

Weight and create an excel spreadsheet for the newly updated grant decision rubric. 

Extract important deadline, timeline and other relevant information from our "Light the Way" grant manual to include in the grant application.

Make contact with our PGC to make certain all transitions occur smoothly.

Please do not copy a.../Diversity and Inclusion: Through the combination of selecting a grant winner and providing a blog platform for publicizing the services and projects designed to reach underserved children and their caregivers our committee strives to inform the library community of the opportunities to implement programming that is both inclusive and reaches diverse populations.
Please do not copy a.../Advocacy: Shining a light on services currently being provided through soliciting and sponsoring and partnering with others in the future to advocate for the underserved has already begun. We requested a guest blog post to address outreach programs being offered to underserved communities at the doctor's office. The article will be published in January.
Please do not copy a.../Learning and Development:  
An ALSC core value is collaboration. Please describe collaborations you have initiated or would like to initiate with other ALSC or ALA committees to help further your work. Please list the desired outcomes you envision from this/these collaboration(s). What are the next steps you have set to accomplish this? What assistance do you need in taking this forward?: Common goals and interests would be served by reaching out to, and possibly partnering with, the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services. 

Exploration of the intersection between the various ALSC groups and Committees to determine potential partnerships potential will be further investigated in future meetings.

Please describe activities you would like to pursue for future education topics, publications, or online resources (such as toolkits) to be developed based on the committee’s work? What are the next steps you have set to accomplish this? What assistance do you need in taking this forward? Please be as detailed as possible.: We discussed the importance of addressing topics that recurred in our grant applicant pool. For example, many applicants applied for the "Light the Way" grant award to create a sensory storytime. Our group will write a blog post to address creating a little-or-no-cost sensory storytime to assist other libraries with this extremely important program implementation.
If you could recommend a research topic, pertaining to the realm of your committee’s work, to an academic colleague, what would you request s/he research and why? (In other words, what gaps in research do you see in this particular area so that ALSC can share with the Association for Library and Information Science Educators and/or help develop ALSC's own research agenda?): Services and programs for refugee families, vulnerable or home insecure communities and where and how to reach them.
If you are a virtual committee or task force, what is your primary method for holding meetings or communicating?:  
When you communicate electronically, how are you preserving the work of the committee for the next committee?*: Posting minutes in committee's ALA Connect space., dropbox
