RUSA Board of Directors (Reference and User Services Association) Committee
Hello RUSA Board members!
The RUSA Strategic Plan Coordinating Task Force has had several telephone meetings since our big strategic planning day on Friday, January 30 during ALA Midwinter in Chicago. Our most recent was yesterday, March 30.
We are at a point where we feel ready to share a draft document for review by the board. Please see the attached document. Comments are very welcome. Please share right here in this ALA Connect thread. This draft comes as a result of taking the documents that came out of our full day session, then incorporating member priorities that had been already identified in the RUSA Review survey and report back in summer/fall 2014.
If you weren't with us in Chicago in January 2015 for the board's strategic planning session, I've tried to provide some helpful context by writing an overview of what took place there in the most recent RUSA Update (March 2015). See the President's Column, Strategic Planning Update:
Thank you all on the RUSA Board for the time and energy you've already committed toward making this a strong plan that will guide our association for the next 3 years (at least)! We're not done yet however, so please do share your thoughts.
I'm feeling very good about the progress that we've made thus far, and absolutely must thank again the task force members: Anne Houston (chair), Chris Le Beau, Erin Rushton, Jennifer Boettcher, Liane Taylor, and Kathleen Kern.
