Olivia M. A. Madison, ALCTS President
ALCTS PRESIDENTIAL CITATION AWARDS!!!
The awards ceremony will be followed by the ALCTS President's Program, "Minding the Gap: Generational Issues in Recruitment and the Work Place." This program features Lynn Lancaster (Co-founder of BridgeWorks) and a panel featuring Mary Chute (Deputy Director for Library Services, Institute of Museum and Library Services) and Jessica Albano (Communications Studies Librarian, University of Washington). The program will explore generational differences encountered by libraries, and offers suggestions for ways librarians and staff of all generations can work better together, recruit new staff members and meet the needs of their multigenerational constituencies. Please come and learn what makes each of us tick differently!
ALCTS PROGRAMS IN TORONTO
ALCTS GOVERNANCE PLANNING
To these ends, the Board of Directors will discuss the following recommendations at our annual meeting in Toronto:
If you have any comments, questions, or other suggestions for these proposals, please don't hesitate to contact me ( firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-294-1443).
If the ALCTS membership approves the creation of interest groups through the spring election process, at the annual conference the Board of Directors will determine the on-going status of the current divisional committees. Specifically, the Board would decide which divisional committees would remain as board committees, and the process by which the remaining divisional committees might chose to reconstitute themselves as Interest Groups or Discussion Groups or to discontinue completely as divisional governance units.
I sincerely hope that circumstances will provide you the opportunity to attend the ALA conference in Toronto. I look forward to seeing you at the ALCTS President's Program Meeting!
