1. LLAMA Orientation-- Fitsimmons reported that he is working on supporting documents packet to accompany an orientation webinar that Kerry Ward , ALA Staff Liaison, is developing. March is the targeted timeframe for the webinar to be completed. Fall is the timeframe for conducting the webinar in preparation for the 2014 Midwinter Meeting.
2. Strategic Plan/Annual Operating Plan (AOP)-- AOP is mapped to ALA fiscal year, September --August. Is not mapped to appointment terms, July -- June. Requires much communication among all. To begin developing a LOMS' 2013 AOP Lucas will excerpt LOMS specific Key Strategies from each Strategic Theme from the strat plan creating a LOMS specific table.
ACTION: By February 15 She will post it to the LOMS Connect online documents. The LOMS Executive Committee will review it to see which LOMS' committees are appropriate to be assigned as responsible for each LOMS specific Key Strategy and develop tactics (most specific level). And what activities committees are already working on can be added, with tactics. Further action is to establish a timeline and transition plan this year, put it into practice, make adjustments and add what works to the orientation.
Respectfully submitted, Kari Lucas, LLAMA LOMS Executive Committee Secretary
