Web Management Group

The ALA Web Management Group (WMG) has strategic planning and practical oversight of ALA web-based resources, regardless of whether they are on ala.org or other platforms. This oversight includes the

  • Look and layout of the ala.org homepage, including featured slides;
  • Information architecture (menus) of the homepage and the next level of ala.org;
  • Branding and marketing guideline compliance and accessibility compliance on all ALA sites.

WMG is composed of the Directors of Membership, Marketing, ITTS, a division representative selected by the Division Directors, an Advocacy Director (alternating annually between Chicago and the Washington Office), Web Content Manager and the User Experience Manager, who acts as convener.

WMG meets monthly, usually on the first Thursday of the month at 11:00 AM in the Training Room (6th floor, Chicago). Agenda items may be submitted to any member of the group or sent directly to the convener, at naleck@ala.org. Meeting reports are published publicly from the group's ALA Connect Community. You are welcome to follow the group in ALA Connect to receive emailed notifications of public posts.
