CMS Survey – Committee discussed survey analysis, action items, distribution of results, changes to be made to CMS as a result of survey. (See SurveySummary_05102013.pdf, sent by Cory prior to meeting)
Approximately 240 members responded (17% of membership)
Is this enough of a response to accurately gauge CMS members thoughts on CMS?
For now, we will focus on the comments. Themes occurring in comments include:
Participation opportunities & need to better engage members
More online participation opportunities
Look to question 6 on “challenges” that would lead to topics for online delivery and/or for MW forum.
Some possible actions from these themes include:
Work to get content related to collections added to professional development offerings by ALCTS
Could work though CMS Education committee or Publications committee for venues such as the Collection=Connection blog
Action: Cory will contact CMS Education Committee’s chair
We should consider better branding (including the blog)
We should advertise in multiple ways in order to reach a diverse audience, including using an email list. Action: Cory will ask Charles Wilt if we can send set up a listserv for all CMS members.
Use existing venues available to us including webinars, ALCTS e-forums, ALCTS CE committee process
Action: Steven Harris and another volunteer yet to be determined will look at the comments section more closely for other topics to address.
Action: Cory and Ellen will talk about the survey as part of their transition conversation.
Action: Cory will ask Charles about posting the survey as a public document. Action: Andrea will post on Connect with either public or private status as appropriate.
Annual CMS Leaders meeting schedule (10:30-11:30)
CMS Executive meeting will start at 8:30, first meeting with committees, then meeting with ALCTS leadership at 9:00am (Myall and Owens)
