Chapter Issues and More
See also Chapter Issues to see how Chapters share with each other how they address their common issues, and State of the Chapter Annual Report, which are snapshot reports compiled to help Chapters and ALA assess the health and vitality of state and regional library associations. In addition, they highlight notable activities and achievements that can be modeled, and identify challenges and needs that may be addressed collectively.

Protocol for Monitoring and Responding to State and Local Library Crises. The American Library Association (ALA) has adopted a protocol to respond to library crises at the state and local level. The goal of ALA's involvement is to advance the advocacy efforts of the library and/or the appropriate state-level library organization. ALA can only become involved when its efforts are welcomed by and coordinated with the library and/or the state-level library organization. See ALA Protocol for Monitoring and Responding to State and Local Library Crises (PDF).
