Core Update – October 23, 2019

Greetings again from the Steering Committee of Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures, a proposed division of ALA.

Thank you for all of your questions and feedback about the proposed new division! The Steering Committee has been revising Core documents based on what we’ve heard from you so far in order to share draft bylaws and other information with you soon. We want you to know that we are continuing to listen and incorporate the feedback you’re providing via Town Halls, Twitter Chats, the Core feedback form, and more. 

In our next Steering Committee meeting, we will be discussing how we can support the operational involvement of interested volunteers. If you have ideas on how members should be involved, please share them with us through the feedback form

We’re working hard to ensure everyone can participate in the Core conversation, so please let us know what could make Core a compelling and worthy division home for you. Full details for all our upcoming events are below.

Miss any of the discussion? Catch up here:

You can always stay up to date on the latest Core news by visiting, but we also need to hear from you. Members like you will shape the future of this proposed division — please participate in these conversations to help develop and refine Core’s division identity.
