2018-19 Strategic Planning – Initial Consultation

Background:  The CFLA-FCAB Board is currently engaged in a strategic planning process.  We are asking both member associations and the larger stakeholder community to provide some feedback to advance this process.  As an association of associations the Board is focusing on ensuring our direction complements the work of our members and we are best representing the Canadian library community. 
We are the national voice of Canada’s library associations.
