ALA Midwinter 2012 — Sunday, Jan. 22 — ALA-APA Council Meeting

Jim Neal, ALA-APA Treasurer, presented his report.  He highlighted the three areas of activity for ALA-APA:  providing national certification for library workers (Certified Public Library Administrator Program and Library Support Staff Certification Program); advocating for salaries and training for library workers; and providing reports and analyses (Library Salary Survey, Non-MLS Salary Survey, Library Salary Database).  He happily reported that ALA-APA experienced a gain in net revenue of nearly $30,153. 

Roberta Stevens, ALA-APA Past President, and Jim Rettig, ALA-APA Past President and Task Force Chair, presented a recommendation from the Presidential Task Force for Improving Effectiveness of ALA’s Council.  The recommendation is to amend the APA bylaws to abolish the APA Council and adopt other changes to the bylaws. Action will not be taken until the 2012 annual conference.
