A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing
you just did?  Don't do that.'
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt


CASLIS has recognized the need to address emerging issues and trends that
affect both our division and its members. With this in mind, CASLIS created
a Strategic Planning Task Force and has embarked on a strategic planning
process to help guide our division over the next three to five years.

An exciting opportunity to participate in this process has been offered to
the entire library community as part of the ongoing CASLIS Strategic
Planning Process, and I ask you to consider participating and providing
your input.

Through the entire strategic planning task force process CASLIS seeks to
better understand its members, the issues we face and how the division can
help us succeed.

Your time is valuable - the time you invest in participating in the focus
group session/s, will help strengthen our division, our association and our
profession. Please, help build a better CASLIS.

If you are interested in participating in the focus groups, please contact a
local task force member who will help you get registered. A
teleconference option will be made available for those individuals who are
interested in participating, but the focus group physical location, date, or
time is not convenient. If you are interested in participating in a
teleconference, please contact Anne Chesnutt at: [log in to unmask]
