Thank you to all the YALSA members-some who are Chairs and committee or task force members that attended the virtual 2022 YALSA Virtual Winter meeting on Saturday January 15.
The agenda and documents -consent, discussion and information-can be found here. YALSA staff submit their reports and then various member positions within YALSA contribute theirs as well. The reports give insight as to the work the organization has done since July 1.
To recap the discussion items of the meeting-of which the board documents are also linked on the YALSA Board Agendas, Documents, and Minutes page. The Board approved the Chinese American Reading Lists proposed by the CALA/YALSA joint Taskforce. This will be an exciting enrichment to CALA’s 50th anniversary in March 2023! The Board is grateful for the work of the Committee in putting together this information. We also discussed proposed policy updates that were submitted from the Amazing Audiobooks and Quickpicks Committees. They worked on incorporating the YALSA EDI statement which is great! There are a few changes to be made to the documents for the Board to approve the changes. We’re grateful for the hard work that was put into these Board documents as well.
Our next Board Meeting will be at ALA Annual in Washington D.C.! (Registration opens in February!)
