Hello, YALSA Colleagues-
Did you know that the YALSA Executive Committee and the Board work year round? We do! Virtually – just like many of YALSA’s committees and taskforces.
As part of YALSA’s new organizational plan we decided to hold our Fall Quarterly Executive Committee meeting virtually. This shift allowed us to save money & time (both for YALSA and for individual executive committee members) and to take advantage of 21st Century technologies. At our September 25th meeting, we discussed YALSA finances and building stronger relationships with ALA offices and divisions.
The YALSA Board also works virtually. This allows us to continue our work throughout the year and to be able to address topics that impact teens and our members in a more timely and efficient manner. To see what we’ve been discussing since Annual, take a look at the 2018 Midwinter Meeting Agenda and Documents. Here you will see the items we have discussed or acted on so far this Fall, including items related to the ALA Executive Director Search and Advancing Diversity within YALSA, one component of our organizational plan.
If you have questions about the work of the Executive Committee or the Board please leave them in the comments! Or send them directly to me.
Thanks for all you do for YALSA and for teens!
YALSA President 2017-2018
