Discussion Relationship with GLSEN

by Hayley McEwing on Tue, May 24, 2011 at 11:01 am

Hi, Committee:

Just wanted to keep you updated on my contact with GLSEN (email correspondance below).  It was interesting to know that we are already connected with this group (see Stephanie's response) ... I did mention the poster session opportunity.

Thank you for your quick response, Stephanie, and for contacting your other leaders!   I'm sorry to say that I was not aware of our collaboration for No Name Calling week but am pleased that our organizations have a history of working together.  As you can imagine, the committee I serve on is just a minute piece of the overall organization.  This small group acts as a frontline for contacts and assures that ALA is indeed connecting with other organizations. I will pass on your email to my committee, and look forward to our continued relationship! Thank you for your time,Hayley Hayley Elece McEwing, M.L.I.S.

I have emailed both of my assigned organizations with an email like the following:

To Whom It May Concern:

I have emailed both of my assigned organizations with an email like the following:

To Whom It May Concern:

As a member of the American Library Association and their Liaisons with National Organizations Serving Children and Youth Committee, I am writing in hopes of connecting our organization with yours.    In the past, one of our committee members did make contact with ________.  If he/she is still part of your staff and can provide an updated email address, we will continue to work with him/her.  If not, we are happy to make a new connection with another member of your organization.  The American Library Association can support your organization by offering booklists.  These can be specially created for your organization, or we can introduce and explain those already on our website: www.ala.org.  We are also interested in the opportunities that your organization provides children and youth and are interested in linking some of your web pages with ours.  There is also great potential for other collaboration projects that we have yet to discover and discuss.  Please consider working with us.  Together, we can better serve our mutual investment -- children and youth.  Thank you for your time.  Warm regards,  I have heard back from one of the organizations and have planned a phone conversation with her for February 24.  As this is my first time on this committee, what else can I offer/discuss with the contact other than going into detail of what I mentioned in the email?  I want to take full advantage of this opportunity. Thank you for your guidance. Hayleyhttp://learningemergingleadership.blogspot.com/

Discussion Poster Session Letter

Hi, LNOSCY  -- Thought I would share my letter below:

 

Hello, _____:

Hi, LNOSCY  -- Thought I would share my letter below:

 

Hello, _____:

  It has been many months since we spoke on the phone.  However, I am hopeful that you and your organization are still interested in connecting with the American Library Association (ALA).  My committee (Liaisons with National Organizations Serving Children and Youth) had a meeting on June 27 in Washington DC wherein we discussed how best to connect with other organizations.   We decided to have a poster session featuring national organizations, such as (organization's name), during our annual conference in 2012 in Anaheim, CA (June 21-26).  Would your organization be interested in supplying us information for this endeavor?  Or if you have a representative in Anaheim, perhaps they would like to meet us? The committee also mentioned the possibility of attending each other's conventions/conferences and collaborating on presentations at these events.  For us, Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays during annual conferences would be best. Please let me know if (organization's name) is still interested in working with ALA and what other ideas you might have for collaboration. I appreciate your time and consideration.
