2010-2011 Annual Committee Work Plans - review process and deadlines (sent by ACRL President Lisa Hinchliffe via email 7/22/2010)

Division-level Committee Chairs have been tasked by the Board with preparing their annual committee work plans in coordination with the committee vice-chair, Board and staff liaisons, and the committee membership.

The deadline for submission of annual committee work plans was July 15. As this is the first year that all division level committees were expected to submit work plans, an extension has been granted until July 30. The ACRL Executive Committee is responsible for providing feedback to committees and welcomes input from the Board and staff liaisons in preparation for their review. The following deadlines and process will be followed to review the 2010-2011 Annual Committee work plans.

July 30: Deadline for 2010-2011 work plans submission to ACRL office

August 4: Deadline for Board liaisons to submit feedback on liaison committee’s 2010-2011 work plans.
• Feedback should be submitted via email to ACRL Program Officer Katie Coombes at kcoombes@ala.org.
• Note: Katie will be out of the office for two weeks starting August 7, so late submissions cannot be accommodated.

Executive Committee will convene via conference call to review annual committee work plans and Board liaison feedback.
• ACRL staff will communicate the Board’s feedback on annual work plan submissions to committee chairs with copy to the committee vice-chair and Board and staff liaisons.

Note: Although feedback will be given on a “rolling basis” as reviews are complete, the Executive Committee will also review annual committee work plans as a collective to assess the association’s overall planned advancement of the strategic plan. This will be complete by the Board’s Strategic Planning and Orientation Session.
