New Board Report Template

Hello AASL Board,

See information below regarding a new process and structure to bring requests and information forward to the AASL Board of Directors.  If you would like to request any action be taken by the AASL Board of Directors at the 2014 Midwinter meeting please see the new process below.

Starting in 2014 the attached board report has been approved by the AASL Executive Committee for use at all board meetings.  This new template allows any board member, committee chair/committee, and staff to submit both requests for action as well as reports of information to the board.  The intent of the new report is to ensure that all necessary information is presented to the board for consideration as well as a clearly spelled out request to the board and a consistent format.  Obviously there will be a learning curve to this new process but we are hopeful that this will enable a direct path to requesting action of the board as well as a higher level of information sharing and issue understanding.

To this end, anyone that wishes to submit a board report for the ALA Midwinter meeting needs to submit a report, using the attached template, no later than January 13th. If you have any questions please let me know.

Have a great weekend!
