Looking for a viable path forward for professional associations

SLA LogoBy Rick Kowalski,

Local chapter member Michael Gruenberg  recently wrote an article in Online Searcher titled Finding Value in Professional Associations: Management and Membership Issues. Gruenberg takes a hard look at the current value propositions of professional associations and the uphill battle they face in maintaining viability. While he enumerates the many challenges with which library associations are confronted, he also finds optimism in the management approaches by MLA and NFAIS.

It’s worth a read as it addresses many of the issues that SLA is dealing with at the moment, as members consider the SLA Recommendations Report.  The report recommends many major changes to the structure and activities of the association. If you have questions, comments or concerns about the report, please contact Tara Murray (secretary@sla.org) by June 23, 11:59 p.m. EDT.
