IS THIS AN INTERIM OR ANNUAL REPORT? __ Interim _x_Annual
LIST SIGNIFICANT ACTIVITIES THE COMMITTEE HAS DONE SINCE LAST REPORT:
Since the last CALA Midwinter Meeting in San Diego in January 2011, the 2012 Program Planning Committee has revised its responsibilities, procedures, publicity, and timeline for the CALA Organization Manual (see Appendix I), and fine tuned the topic of the 2012 program and the list of possible speakers.
The 2012 program theme is library advocacy, diversity, and leadership. We hope our speakers will share with us highlights of their lives, their favorite libraries and books, in addition to their secrets in overcoming hurdles or in accomplishing goals.
The tentative speakers are:
1. Dr. Judy Chu, the first Chinese American Congresswoman in the United States, living in Monterey Park, California.
2. Mr. Jim Rettig, ALA President, 2008/2009, and the University Librarian at the University of Virginia.
3. Ms. Lisa See, a Chinese American bestselling author, living in Los Angeles, California.
4. Dr. Sha Li Zhang, CALA President, 2008/2009, and Assistant Dean for Collections and Technical Services, University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
Presentation invitations were recently sent to the four distinguished speakers above, inviting them to speak to us on Sunday, 6/24/2012, 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., during the American Library Association Annual Conference in Anaheim, California. The Program Proposal for ALA was completed (see Attachment II) and sent to Miguel Figueroa, Office of Diversity, ALA.
We have already received a positive reply from one of the speakers. In the event that any of the other speakers are unavailable, we would make contacts from the following alternate list:
1 Ms. Jean Quan, Mayor of Oakland
2 Dr. Camila Alire, ALA President, 2009/2010.
3 Ms. Roberta Stevens, ALA President, 2010-2011.
4 Mr. Tom Galante, CEO, Queens Library, New York
5 Ms. Yiyun Li, author of Gold Boy, Emerald Girl and Professor at the University of California at Davis.
6 Ms. Lingyao Wu, author of American Kids, Chinese Mothers and a humorous speaker.
Before the end of May 2012, all speakers will be confirmed, and details of the program worked out.
