From a CLA Announcement:
Today, CLA’s Executive Council enacted plans to restructure the Association for long term sustainability and to better meet the needs of its members. After an extensive strategic review, CLA will be refocused on leadership in library values, research and advocacy.
In order to accomplish these objectives, CLA made a number of changes to our business operations and two mandate changes to streamline association services. CLA will now focus on publishing reports, research papers, white papers and policy documents related to its mandate with the exception of those publications and monographs currently in progress as of May 28, 2014.
Further, CLA will focus on the national conference as the association’s exclusive professional development offering and support the Education Institute for other professional opportunities.
As a result of these adjustments to our business operations, several staffing changes have been made in our office. The restructured staff complement to meet our objectives will be announced shortly.
CLA looks forward to working with members to continue to build a stronger CLA and a stronger library and information services community.
