As always, thank you so much to those folks who participated in our two online webinars taking a deeper dive into Forward Together and those who participated in our sessions in Philadelphia focusing on greater change within ALA. We spoke to hundreds of members in Philadelphia, and another hundred have attended our webinars. Members in both venues echoed similar themes:
The information we're gathering now will inform the group charged to work on phase two of Forward Together. To test one of the recommendations put forth in Forward Together, ALA, through SCOE, will put out an open call for volunteers to inform ALA President Wanda K. Brown's appointment process. The call for volunteers will be open April 13-26 and appointments will be made in May. For phase two of Forward Together, we will be looking for specific skills, perspectives, and diversity for the team, all to be outlined and identified in the call for volunteers.
We're also working on the best mechanism to share our notes and feedback from members so that members can identify how input helped inform the Forward Together recommendations. As always, there is more to come. We look forward to your continued feedback, and we're excited to see what happens next in the association. Stay up to date with the latest on Forward Together on our website, forwardtogether.ala.org or in our Connect Group, "Organizational Effectiveness (SCOE) Project: Discussion Forum"Sincerely,The Steering Committee on Organizational Effectiveness
