Council II- February 12, 2018

Good morning- the main focus for Council II was a discussion about organizational efficiency.  ALA will be engaging in a 18 months process to get as many ideas and perspectives to be a more efficient and entrepreneurial in our focus, initiatives and structure.
Many of the divisions and roundtables are struggling with funding and membership.
A strong focus will be to build a stronger relationship with the Chapters.  Much discussion centered on the fact that Chapters are closely involved with their librarians in states.  Historically, many chapters have felt a disconnect with the national organization.  I will be staying very close to these discussions as they will ideally help KLA members feel more connected to ALA.
I will also keep you informed when there are opportunities to share your thoughts on how ALA can best meet Kansas and Kansan librarians.
