Leadership Development Committee – January–June 2024 Report

The group met 2-3 times this reporting period.

After reviewing the current PLA Strategic Plan, please tell us:

Describe the current work of this committee and how it supports our strategic goals. Include work accomplished, decisions made, and any recommended follow-up actions.
The Leadership Development Committee hosted the final two Stronger Together series of conversations in January with a total attendance of 90.

By hosting the sessions, our committee has had the opportunity to interact with other committees and board members, as well as the membership. Additionally, the topics selected for the series were done so to specifically align with the PLA strategic goals.

Additionally, during the PLA annual conference Leadership Development committee members led two, one-hour discussion sessions in the Member Lounge.

Do you see opportunities to better align committee work with those goals?
Not at this time.

What recommendations do you have for in-coming committee members? Are there particular streams of
work in progress to be carried over into the new committee year?
(January–June reporting period only)

What specific activities will this committee undertake over the next six months to support that alignment? (July–December reporting period only)

Are there other PLA or ALA committees whose partnership and collaboration would accelerate meeting PLA strategic goals?
None that come to mind.

Is there anything else about your committee experience you’d like to share?
Thank you for the opportunity to volunteer with PLA. It has been a very enjoyable experience.
