Illinois Library Association Releases Draft of 2019-22 Strategic Plan

(via the Illinois Library Association)

ILA is currently in the process of updating our strategic plan! This process began in spring 2018 with ILA Executive Board planning sessions followed by a broad survey of members and non-members, a strategic planning workshop with ILA committees and forum managers in July, a series of focus groups held online and in locations around the state, and additional ILA Executive Board review and discussion.

We are now pleased to share a draft strategic plan document that we intend to guide our focus over the next few years. It is not a “to-do list,” nor is it a comprehensive description of the ILA portfolio of activities. Rather, a strategic plan is a directional document and statement of priorities for the near future.

The ILA Executive Board will vote on the strategic plan at its upcoming April 18, 2019 meeting. While we don’t expect the underlying structure or principles to change much from this document as presented, which was developed with broad-based input and a great deal of thoughtful consideration and discussion (and even debate!), please do share feedback with Executive Director Diane Foote at dfoote@ila.org.

We are so very appreciative of all those who have helped in the development of this plan by sharing your hopes,  aspirations, praise, and constructive criticism of and for the association with us over the past year.
