    Good Evening

    I was going through LinkedIn and I came across this report https://www.imls.gov/news/new-research-underscores-role-museums-libraries-play-create-healthier-more-equitable-america.

    A cursory look at the release from this report proves the point that, far from being an irrelevancy, libraries and museums are a crucial part of the social infrastructure of a community.

    This report brings sharp focus to the need for libraries and by extension, librarians and information professionals.

    To me, this report is just one more piece of evidence for the need for a vital and robust SLA.  Amongst our membership, we have the skills, talents, and creativity to re-imagine and re-engineer our association so that it will be the PREMIER association for information professionals.

    It will take all of us, contributing our skills and wisdom to the substantive tasks at hand and putting aside focusing on that which does not bring value for the membership dollar or the sponsorship spend made by our industry partners.

    The report is long, but I would encourage all to at least review the executive summary.

    Regards
