Strategic Plan 2011
This summer at the 2004 Annual Conference, ALCTS embarked on a new strategic planning cycle. This is an opportunity for ALCTS to scan the environment, determine how we can best meet the needs of our membership, and set goals and priorities for the next five years (2006-2010). ALA's planning cycle is also beginning and through our own planning process, ALCTS is uniquely positioned to influence the ALA Plan.
Activities to date
Under a very tight timeline, Helen compiled the responses to serve as part of the agenda for the afternoon (see summary below). The results of this survey and the discussions will be used by the Planning Committee as one source of information for formulating the next draft plan.
In September, Helen Reed and Charles Wilt, ALCTS Executive Director, represented the association at a two day retreat involving ALA Division Presidents, the ALA Executive Board, division executive directors and senior ALA management. This provided the opportunity to promote ALCTS' concerns and priorities as they relate to the larger ALA planning process.
What's to come?
Please provide your thoughts and input so that the association can meet your needs!
