CAL Board News

Posted by Susan Gilbert on behalf of Martin Garnar and the CAL Board.
 
The current global economic crisis has affected everyone, including non-profits like CAL. Some people are making tough choices about association memberships and conference attendance. Since therese are the two largest sources of CAL income, the association’s fiances are astrained as everyone else’s. As a result, the board is investigating options that will allow CAL to continue to serve our members and the Colorado library community. This includes issuing a Request for Quotes (RFQ) for a management company that may prove to be a less expensive alternative to our current situation. We want to stress that no decisions have been made, but as good librarians we simply want to have all the information as we plan for CAL’s next step.

 

What can you do to help? Renew your membership. Register for the conference. Encourage your friends and colleagues to do the same. Share your ideas with board members. Together, we’ll weather this storm and position the association for a sustainable future.
