Diversity and Global Reach in a Digital Age: A Renewed Vision and Re-energized Commitment
2011-12 CALA Presidential Initiative Theme


Dear CALA Colleagues and Friends:

In the past two years, I have met with many CALA members to share ideas and concerns to shape a platform that will make CALA better and stronger.

The theme of the CALA's annual program, "Embracing the Changes: Diversity and Global Vision in a Digital Age" to be held on June 26, 2011, sets the tone for the 2011-12 CALA presidential initiatives. The speeches of the program will open the dialogue on the theme of diversity and global reach.  A series of activities/projects will be carried out during 2011-12 period to demonstrate CALA's commitment to taking a leadership role in promoting cultural diversity and international collaboration in library profession. We have already lined up with a number of corporate sponsors who support the CALA 2011 annual program and the 2011-12 CALA presidential initiatives.

Since the ALA Mid-winter in San Diego, I have started recruiting members for the 2011-12 Presidential Initiative Taskforce. If you have good suggestions or would like to help, please contact me at minchou.njcu@gmail.com.  Let's work together to make CALA a more intellectually and professionally vibrant place for us all.

Thank you!

Min Chou
Vice President/President Elect of CALA 2010-11
