IS THIS AN INTERIM OR
ANNUAL REPORT?
   Annual Report

LIST SIGNIFICANT ACTIVITIES
THE COMMITTTEE HAS DONE SINCE THE LAST REPORT:

Since our last Report for the Midwinter Conference in Denver, January 2009, our
Committee members have publicized our many successful Chapter programs, and won
interviews and newspaper write-ups for some of our speakers or programs. 

Our members also succeeded in reaching out to ten different vendors to place advertisements in our upcoming Membership
Directory
, 2008-2009, raising a total of $3,250.00 for the Directory printing (see the Appendix -1 on
Advertisements.) 

Moreover, the group outreached to twelve donors, and raised $3,250.00 for the Sally C.
Tseng Professional Development Grant (see
the Appendix -2 on Donors.)

In addition, three donors gave a total of $600.00 to the 2009 CALA Awards Banquet, to be held in Chicago in July.

A donor gave $150.00
to the CALA Web Advertisement.

Another donor gave $500.00
to the 21st Century Seminar
Fund.

The total raised from
donors is $4,500.00 (
see the Appendix-2 on Donors)

The grand total for
fundraising this year is thus $7,750.00 ($3,250 + $4,500.00)!

In going about our business, the name of our Chinese
American Librarians Association reached a much wider audience and gained
greater visibility.  The strong support
of our vendors and friends are truly appreciated!
