State of the Chapter Annual Report

On recommendation of ALA’s Chapter Relations Committee, beginning in 2012 all Chapters were asked to complete the "State of the Chapter Annual Report."

These snapshot reports help Chapters and ALA assess the health and vitality of state and regional library associations. They also help highlight notable activities and achievements that can be modeled, and identify challenges and needs that may be addressed collectively.

  • Visit All State of the Chapter Reports to view and download all the Chapters' data obtained through the latest recorded surveys.
  • The Chapter Councilor is tasked with responsibility for their Chapter’s completion and submission of the "State of the Chapter Annual Report." For Regional Chapters, the President is asked to oversee the submission.
  • NOTE: The 2012 State of the Chapter Report obtained data for FY2011. The 2013 State of the Chapter Report obtained data for FY2012. The 2014 State of the Chapter Report will obtain data for FY2013. The 2015 State of the Chapter Report will obtain data for FY2014, and so on.
