How Do You Intend to Turn Strategy Into Tactics? 2010-2013 AALL Strategic Directions Statement Adopted
In a message dated May 6, 2010, AALL President Catherine Lemann announced that our association's Executive Board adopted AALL's 2010-2013 Strategic Directions statement at its April 9-10 board meeting. Lemann adds that an overview of the Association's new strategy will be presented to the membership at the 2010 Annual Meeting during the Business Meeting to be held July 12.
Perhaps an equally, if not more, important meeting would be to attend the "Meet the Candidates" session on July 13. One question to ask candidates might be "how do you intend to do to turn strategy into tactics, if elected?" A strategy without tactics is nothing more than an empty promise to the membership. See AALL's Draft Strategic Directions Statement for 2010-2013: Good Job as Long as It Does Not End Here.
Compared to last year, at least this year's slate of candidates offers a better chance to elect officers and board members representing a broader range of institutional affiliations to direct our association. It's going to take an executive board that represents the entire spectrum of institutional members to turn AALL into an agent of change for all of us.
