ALA 2016 Virtual Membership Meeting

ALA Virtual Membership MeetingYou are invited to register and join ALA President Sari Feldman along with hundreds of other ALA members for the annual ALA Virtual Membership Meeting (VMM16) on Thursday, June 2, from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. (CDT). VMM16 is a terrific way to have your voice heard, to discuss essential topics with other members, and to connect with colleagues, old and new. Live captioning is provided so all registrants can participate.  It is your chance to contribute, connect, and engage. This virtual meeting will:

  • update you about ALA’s strategic directions and finances;
  • cover topics related to the Libraries Transform public awareness campaign as well as the work of the Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; and
  • provide participants the opportunity to submit and to vote on resolutions or testimonials.

Registration is now open. A dedicated VMM16 ALA web page and ALA Connect group provide detailed information and relevant documents. If you are considering submitting a resolution, you’ll find complete guidelines on the web page. Remember to submit your resolution no later than 1:30 p.m. (CDT) on Thursday, May 26.

The meeting officially concludes at 2:30 p.m., but the text-chat session will remain open for an additional 15 minutes to allow participants to wrap up their conversations.

We look forward to “seeing” you online on June 2.  Please share this information with your own network of contacts. Thanks to the Committee on Membership Meetings (COMM) for their leadership in preparing for VMM16.
