Given our changing communities, what do you want from ALA?

ALA is in the midst of reimagining itself to meet the changing needs of its members.  Be part of the process by sharing your thoughts in a highly interactive session at the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting, Monday, January 28, 8:30-11:30, WSCC Ballroom 6A.  (Not going to Midwinter, share your thoughts here.)

We'll build on work begun in October 2012 -- see notes posted at http://connect.ala.org/node/194969 -- using Open Space Technology, a process in which participants self-organize, defining the agenda based on what matters to them in order to address complex, important issues and accomplish something meaningful.  The session will be guided by author and consultant Peggy Holman.  For more information on Peggy Holman and Open Space Technology, see http://peggyholman.com/about/ and http://peggyholman/openspace/

For Midwinter participants -- or anyone wanting to self-organize a group -- a session host report form is attached.
