At every ALA Midwinter and Annual Conference there is an opportunity for members to attend an informational session to understand what work is occurring at ALA.
In addition to updates from the President and Executive Board, several reports are shared that focus on budget and planning. Members have an opportunity as well to ask questions and make recommendations for work to the Council.
President-elect Jim Neal presented his focus for his year including an emphasis on the new strategic direction Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
There were no additional requests from the membership unlike last year where membership prepared and submitted a couple of resolutions for Council to consider.
