Dear YALSA Members,

I’m excited to tell you about a new goal for YALSA, developed for my theme, Engaging the YALSA Community, and in response to feedback from the new member survey.’  The goal is to have a YALSA event (social event, program, or exhibit hall booth) at every state conference in 2009.

YALSA members always have a great time at our national conference, wouldn’t it be nice to mingle with your fellow local YALSA members? I hope you’ll consider sponsoring a YALSA social event at your local conference next year, or look into one of the other options.

Here you’ll find out exactly what is involved in this initiative and how you can be a part of it!
