I’m all packed up and ready to fly off to Chicago tonight to attend the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Future Summit. Actually, everyone can be involved in the keynote by watching the live stream of Andy Hines keynote address (1 PM CDT on 11/3), and by submitting comments and questions via Twitter by using the hashtag #AALLFS.
The emails flying back and forth on the AALL member communities over the past couple of weeks have been great, and I look forward to the discussion… maybe even a few arguments along the way.
Here are some of the questions that we will cover at the AALL Futures Summit (with a few links to the Google Docs form if you want to contribute your answers):
- Does your library allow telework?
- How can current leaders foster ownership of the Association in newer members?
- How can law librarians in different types of libraries better communicate with each other and with the Association?
- What would encourage you to become more of a leader in the Association and what can the Association do to support your leadership?
- What strategies should the Association adopt to communicate more effectively with members?
- Does the Association provide sufficient technology support and leadership to members? How can this support be improved?
- How should the Association communicate to those outside the Association? Who should the Association be communicating with and through which channels?
I really hope that the same level of passion shows up again this week during the AALL Futures Summit… I’m thinking I won’t be disappointed!
