As I am sure many of you in the APLA community have already heard, there are cuts planned for NRC and CISTI. There are several news items on this issue. Here are links to two:

This is an issue that should be of concern to librarians all across our country. The APLA Executive, on your behalf, will be sending a letter to NRC expressing concern. If you are interested in sending your own letter, it can be directed to the President of NRC:
