LITA Town Meeting

LITA President-Elect Mark Beatty invites LITA members to the LITA Town Meeting, to be held on Monday, January 22, 2007, from 8–10 a.m. in Room 606 of the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle.

Recent years’ Town Meeetings have focused on gathering input for the LITA Strategic Plan, which was approved by the LITA Board at Annual Conference 2005 in Chicago

This year’s Town Meeting will be an idea gathering discussion based on the Strategic Plan, the current environment in the library world, and the question:
What does success look like for LITA and it’s members?

Mark Beatty will give a quick environmental scan. Then the LITA members at the Town Meeting will engage in small group brain storming and cluster ideas in a Tag Cloud like way.

The LITA Blog will be used to inform LITA members of the ideas gathered, solicit their additional input and to follow-up the discussion after the conference. The perspective of members unable to attend conferences is critical to the success of this key strategic initiative.

One thought on “LITA Town Meeting

  1. Will this be recorded so we can at least see a video of the discussion portion? A LITA town meeting should really be conducted online for all LITA members, not just those with sufficient resources to attend ALA conferences. I wish I was “sleepless in Seattle” but I can’t afford it.
