Organizational Effectiveness (SCOE) Project: Discussion Forum

last person joined: 6 months ago 

This space is for all those interested in Forward Together: Recommendations for a reimagined American Library Association governance model to receive updates on the progress of the recommendations and participate in discussion.
--
This space was originally created to share the work of the Steering Committee on Organizational Effectiveness (SCOE) who was charged in June 2018 to carry out a comprehensive review and study of ALA’s governance, member participation and legal structures and systems, with the goal of proposing changes that will vitalize its success, strength and agility as a 21st century association. The results of this committee are the Forward Together recommendations.

    Hello,

    What opportunities will there be for members to provide comments and suggestions on this version? Will there  be opportunities for discussion at Midwinter?

    Hi Susan!

    I'm sorry I didn't see this message sooner!

    Opportunities for direct comments, suggestions, and questions on the recommendations themselves will be available virtually twice, ahead of Midwinter and post Midwinter. Registration links are forthcoming.

    Forward Together sessions at Midwinter will focus on how we can all work together to continue strengthening ALA and moving the association forward and hopefully include updates from groups that have been working on changes to their structures.  These sessions are available in the Midwinter Scheduler and are listed below.

    I also welcome invitations to speak with and to boards virtually over the next few months!
