Tell us what you think -- at Virtual Town Hall Meetings

CHICAGO - American Library Association (ALA) members are invited help shape the future of the Association by joining in one, two, or all three virtual town hall meetings being convened to discuss the Association's new strategic directions.

Hosted by ALA President Courtney Young and ALA Executive Director Keith Michael Fiels, the sessions will focus on three initiatives that have been identified as strategic priorities for the next three to five years: Advocacy, Information Policy, and Professional and Leadership Development. Participating members will have a real-time opportunity to share their vision, opinions and ideas in these three critical areas.

The town hall meetings are scheduled as follows:

*            Advocacy - November 19th, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. CST.  Register via this link: http://ala.adobeconnect.com/e3jnrhpohj3/event/registration.html
