What Can We Offer Outside Organizations?

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.
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.
