Proposed Canadian Library Association Future Plan

The Canadian Library Association Executive Council has released the first draft of the CLA Future Plan. The Future Plan consists of six main headings that outline the proposals to reorganize and rejuvenate the Association. There are hyperlinks from some sections to provide specific details and there are appendices that expand on the information in the main document. The major changes outlined in the Plan include:

* a concentration on national advocacy
* identification of major areas for advocacy efforts
* disbanding of Divisions and Interest Groups
* reduction in the governance structure
* introduction of Networks: grassroots involvement
* emphasis on strong relationships
* a streamlined and transparent budget
* improvements to the IT infrastructure
