YALSA’s Board of Directors adopted a new, three year Organizational Plan in April 2016. The Organizational Plan is supplemented by an Implementation Plan, which outlines the specific tasks YALSA will undertake each year to achieve the goals outlined in the Organizational Plan. The Implementation Plan also designates the resources (financial, human, and organizational) needed for each activity and describes how the Board will measure and monitor progress.
The Board will be reviewing the FY18 Implementation Plan at our Saturday Board meeting during Annual. In our discussion we will be considering major projects in progress that support the plan, changes in the library landscape or larger environment within in which teens and libraries function which might impact the plan, as well as YALSA’s capacity to carry out the activities in the plan. We will also be looking at how the FY18 Implementation Plan builds on the 2016-2017 Implementation Plan.
For more information check out board document #20 located here. You might also want to review board document #28 located here which focuses specifically on building YALSA’s capacity to support the Implementation Plan. Have questions? Post your comments here.

As always, thanks for all you do for YALSA and for teens!
