The Emerging Leaders Project T has been and will be hosting weekly discussions during the month of May regarding getting more involved in YALSA. We want to hear from you, those that know best about what “getting involved” looks like.
These conversations will be held in ALA Connect in the YALSA section. Here’s what we’re discussing (please note that you can comment on any of these posts even if it’s not their designated week):
May 3rd – 9th: How did you begin your involvement with YALSA? Was it full tilt committee work, using the YALSA resources, following their listserv/blog, or something else?
May 10th – 16th: How is money (or the lack there of) been a barrier to involvement? How do you work with or around it?
May 17th – 23rd: Best practices for communication from YALSA to the membership, what’s working and what could be different.
May 24th – 30th: Regional Youth Library Services organizations options and how YALSA fits in there.
The information gathered during these discussions will help YALSA improve service to its members. We invite all YALSA members to participate in this conversation. We want to know how you are involved, your barriers to involvement, what you want to achieve from being involved and anything else you are interested in sharing.
