NCompass Live: A Conversation with ALA President Courtney Young - Online 


Join ALA President Courtney Young for a conversation about ALAís strategic planning process and the strategic directions. With the current plan running through 2015, ALA is currently in the process of articulating the Associationís strategic direction for the next three to five years. Building on the Council-adopted Key Action Areas, three strategic initiatives have been identified as priority areas of focus for the Association after a series of conversations with members during 2013 and 2014. These three strategic initiatives are:

  • Advocacy
  • Information Policy
  • Professional & Leadership Development.

Courtney Young, Head Librarian and Professor of Womenís Studies at Pennsylvania State University, Greater Allegheny campus, was inaugurated as the 2014-2015 ALA President at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
