Welcome to the Competitive Intelligence Division! 

Competitive intelligence (CI) is a vital managerial process and activity that examines the external environment to support strategic AND tactical decision-making. Typically, it is not limited to researching competitor companies.  Organizations examine their markets, customers, suppliers and so forth.  All those aspects contribute to understanding one’s competitive environment.  Since comparison is involved, often there is great overlap with Knowledge Management to “know thyself” as well.

Increasingly, library and information science professionals are embracing CI and enhancing their contributions to their organizations.  Tap into this exciting community and enhance your professional expertise. Join the CI Division!

  • Board Meeting Minutes Now Available

    The SLA New England Board recently moved to make board meeting minutes accessible to the New England Chapter Community in Connect after the recent migration from the old website, where minutes were previously made available.

    You can now find meeting minutes in the Board Meeting Minutes folder of the SLA New England Chapter Connect Library

    Currently, the most recently approved minutes have been added, which include minutes from the 2017 Annual Business Meeting (approved at the 2018 ABM) and the February and March 2019 board meetings. 

    Going forward, the minutes will be added monthly, and I will post an announcement accordingly.

    If you have any questions/comments/concerns about this change or suggestions regarding secretarial duties, please don't hesitate to contact me at kelly.bunting@analog.com.

    Thanks,
    Kelly
    SLA New England Secretary
