We have a quorum, and as the remaining members present themselves, I'll open the meeting.

Background

This plan is the result of a process (assisted by consultant Kathryn Deiss) that began at Annual Conference 2016, with member input for a new strategic plan gathered at Leadership and ALSC and in focus groups.  Online member focus groups continued, and this input informed our Board's strategic planning session in October, where we crafted the Vision statement, spheres of transformation, and areas of strategic action, which were finalized later online. (We agreed the Organizational Values from the previous plan still stood).  After the presidential election, we gathered additional input from members in our December Community Forum.   At Midwinter, at Leadership & ALSC members helped brainstorm potential objectives, and in our Board Meeting we worked on framing our final objectives as closely as possible, with a consensus around what each would entail, and turning our notes to a working group to finalize. 

We have been reviewing that final step on Google Doc and by email over the past week, and the attached plan includes last tweaks as a result of that discussion.  

Hopefully everyone had the chance to ask questions or add comments last week, but I'll hold this space now for any informal questions or comments by Board members on details of the plan.  

Barring any comments by Tuesday February 21st 5pm Central, I would entertain a motion.

We have adopted our 2017-2020 Strategic Plan...and now the real work begins!  

An enormous thanks to each of you, and to staff, who contributed in forming this plan. I feel confident it reflects members needs and concerns, and will challenge ALSC within our capacity to grow to address them.
