We have a quorum. Thank you!  

I would like to take a moment to officially recognize and welcome Jamie Naidoo, our newly elected Vice-President/President-Elect.  Per our Bylaws, Jamie was "seated" immediately upon election, and joined us on our Executive Committee call on Monday. 

With quorum established, our two items are now open for discussion at the following nodes:

Designing Youth Spaces White Paper: http://connect.ala.org/node/265811

Logo/Rebranding: http://connect.ala.org/node/265812

Please discuss within each node. Thank you!

Thank you to all who have carefully researched and considered the implications and costs of logo redesign and rebranding. Sorry, I realize I should have asked this preliminary question earlier.The range of cost for rebranding is considerable-$10,000/$15,000-$50,000. Just a quick question about what determines the difference-does the amount reflect the time it will take for member surveys and input?

If we go in with a plan incorporating the higher end of the consultant estimate approving "UP to $50K" we will have more flexibility with the budget. It could be lower at the end of the process.  

The price depends on the scope of work we decide to take on: Do we consider strategic messaging around member value only? Or do we consider the brand identity and conduct focus groups and surveys with the general public?   This project will also have staff time considerations.  Staff will develop an RFP and scope of work will be tiered so that we choose the services/scope of work we can take on within our budget. There will be expenses for collateral pieces such as envelopes & banners and we will include those considerations in the budget as well.

I hope that helps.

Best,

Paula

Doris, does this address your question? The action that is on the table would authorize staff to start with this exploration.
