I have a question about this these two sentences in the meeting minutes:  "In preparation for the evaluation, staff members have suggested a list of four key performance indicators that will be collected.  In addition to these four, committee members suggested including data on changes in division membership overlap."

I don't have the four key performance indicators in my notes.  What are they?

Good morning, the key performance indicators are:



Key Performance Indicators:


  1. Yearly membership data including membership counts, dues revenue, and ALA market share information.  Also examine retention rates of PLA, ACRL, and AASL and how they may impact ALA’s retention rates.
  2. Yearly comparison of ALA dues for regular members v. dues amounts for regular members of other library and related associations
  3. Yearly data from a lapsed member survey asking about reasons for non-renewal
  4. Yearly data from member survey, particularly questions on level of satisfaction, likelihood of renewing membership, and likelihood of recommending ALA membership to a colleague
