If you missed this call on Wed., Dec. 14, 3pmET/2pmCT, we will post recordings. Be sure to review prior materials, as well as the update on planning, called Envisioning Indiana's Libraries for the Future.
Why have leadership calls?
Indiana Library Federation is comprised of 4 associations, 11 committees, 16 divisions, and 8 districts--with about 190 leaders of our 2,000 members. We work to keep our leaders and members informed and engaged.
ILF will kick off our process at a Strategic Visioning Leadership Retreat on February 3, at the Hamilton East Public Library. A board committee is assembling a group of 70 leaders, members and stakeholders who represent all types and sizes of libraries and job responsibilities. Through this process, we will consider what libraries and library staff need to thrive in the future. Indiana is facing changes in population, economy and demographics, which affects consumer demand, public and private funding and so much more. We need you to help us anticipate and plan for the future.
Throughout 2016, ILF has been laying the foundation for a stronger future. Approved by the board in August, the Work Plan aims to stabilize ILF, engage members, align our programs and increase transparency and accountability. We have worked to engage members in the process, but also recognize that members are inundated with information. We want members and leaders like you to understand the direction and data-driven process. Change is not easy. We need you to serve as our feedback loop, our constructive critics, our ambassadors and our champions for positive change.
Every decision we face has tradeoffs. Help us evaluate those tradeoffs with an eye toward the future. We hope you will be a part of creating our future together.
Thank you. Feel free to call or email us or any of the ILF Board.
Any ILF Member or Leader may participate in these calls. Recordings are also made available for those unable to attend live.
