ACRL Chapters Council Survey
The ACRL Chapters Council serves as a conduit for information and communication between ACRL National and the local ACRL Chapters. Over the past 4 years, the ACRL Chapters Council has petitioned ACRL National for additional funding to support the local chapters. These requests have not been successful. During the 2012 Midwinter Meeting in Dallas, ACRL President Joyce Ogburn and Executive Director Mary Ellen Davis suggested that the Chapters Council present ideas for alternative methods of funding or support that ACRL National could provide to the local chapters in addition to or perhaps even in lieu of the current $1.00 per member currently provided.
The ACRL Chapters Council is currently running a survey open to all members of local ACRL Chapters in order to both gauge your satisfaction with the current funding situation for your chapter and to provide feedback and suggestions on ways that both ACRL National and the ACRL Chapters Council can provide better support and/or funding for your local chapter.
All members belonging to one of ACRL’s local chapters are encouraged to fill out the survey. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until May 15, 2012.
For questions about the survey please contact Rickey Best, Chair of the ACRL Chapters Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
