Hi everyone,

Rachel and I took the notes from our last meeting and incorporated them into Adriene's reworking of our goals.  Rachel also changed the language a bit to make them sound like goals rather than things we just *do* as a matter of course.

Discussion Goals for July 2013 - June 2015

by Cindi Trainor Blyberg on Wed, Sep 25, 2013 at 08:14 am

Hi everyone,

Rachel and I took the notes from our last meeting and incorporated them into Adriene's reworking of our goals.  Rachel also changed the language a bit to make them sound like goals rather than things we just *do* as a matter of course.

Hi everyone,

Rachel and I took the notes from our last meeting and incorporated them into Adriene's reworking of our goals.  Rachel also changed the language a bit to make them sound like goals rather than things we just *do* as a matter of course.

I want to reiterate that the text below is a reworking of the goal statements from the longer Strategic Plan document that was put together by leadership and membership.  The division's principle "deliverables" remain the same--education, publications, networking--and the other ideas, collaboration, advocacy, and infrastructure, have been central to the Board's and the membership's work over the last few years.  We hope that this text reflects the LITA gestalt, and we welcome everyone's comments.

The dates at the top reflect the leadership turnover that we have as an organization.  We are not suggesting that the goals be torn down every year (or every other year) and re-written, but we hope that putting a shorter timeframe on them will mean that thoughtful discussion and re-affirming will happen with each new President, ensuring that the goals are front and center, framing our work.

If these are agreeable to you, we will need a motion and a second, then we can discuss and vote. 

LITA members who aren't board members who are viewing this document, we welcome your comments, too!

 

LITA’s Goals for June 2013- June 2015

Discussion Emerging Leaders: LITA Projects for 2015

by Cindi Trainor Blyberg on Tue, Sep 16, 2014 at 08:48 am

Hi, everyone!

Hi, everyone!

It's that time of year again!  We need to brainstorm, choose, write up, and submit one or more projects for the Emerging Leaders class of 2015 to choose from.  Any LITA project that we submit that is taken up by a team of ELs will require someone from the Board to act as sponsor.  I'm happy to do this until Annual 2015 (unless someone else is a better choice given our diverse expertise), but I will require one of you to volunteer to continue to shepherd the project through the rest of 2015, after the team presents findings and any recommendations to the Board.  Just stating up front that we want to set them up to succeed. ;)

Past projects have included:

  • evaluating online communications around conferences
  • re-branding for LITA
  • researching and writing a handbook for LITA leaders
  • investigating e-learning platforms
  • investigating experts database platforms

Here's where you come in:

  1. If you have ideas now, please share.
  2. Inquire with the committee with which you liaise--they may have ideas
  3. Ask around!

I look forward to reading your ideas!
