Contact: Jenifer Grady


For Immediate Release,

December 1, 2009

CHICAGO - Members may be receiving a survey asking your opinion about your professional education activities and your opinion about the American Library Association’s offerings.

ALA is participating in a project initiated by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) called Decision to Learn. A division-stratified random sample of ALA membership is requested to respond to the survey about formal and informal, structured or self-directed, voluntary or required learning that is directly related to professional growth or job opportunities.

ALA members are encouraged to take 15 minutes to respond so that ALA will understand their learning preferences and needs better and be able to compare its results with the other associations taking part in the project. Members would have received the survey via email on Monday, Nov. 23 or Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2009.
