Your AASL Board of Directors needs YOUR input!

The AASL Board of Directors has been working to develop areas of focus for a new strategic plan for the American Association of School Librarians and is seeking feedback from school librarians across the country. Strategic planning helps to set priorities, focus energy and resources, and assess and adjust the organization’s direction. 

The survey will be open from March 1st until April 5th, 2024. You can access the survey here: Strategic Plan Feedback Form

The survey should take you 10 minutes or less (probably less) to complete, but the impact will be felt for years to come. 

The current AASL strategic plan was approved in 2019. 

The AASL Board of Directors is seeking feedback from school librarians,both members and nonmembers, so please share this with your school librarian friends and colleagues.

Throughout this process, the AASL Board kept the mission, vision, and core values of AASL in mind.

The core values will be embedded into the key action steps for each of the goals selected for the strategic plan.

Your invaluable input will help guide the AASL Board to determine the goals and create key action steps for a two year strategic plan.

In addition to feedback about specific focus areas, we are seeking general feedback as well, so this is a great time to share your thoughts, ideas, and questions with the AASL Board. 

In order to get a direct response to anything you share, you will need to include your name and email address. But, you can answer 100% anonymously as well.

Thank you in advance for taking your valuable time to answer these few questions in order to support AASL’s work that will in turn support the profession and school librarians across the country.

And, if you do decide to answer, please know you will make me smile just as big as I am in this picture taken at the Nashville Public Library.
