Sharon—I love these ideas. The future of the state centers and the network as a whole will definitely be front and center in this meeting. We have a new leader, Shari Werb, and she is full of great ideas and eager to chart a more strategic path for the CFB in general and the state centers in particular.

 

Thanks,

Guy

Thanks, Guy! 

 

LAL is clearly on my front burner right now ... but after I sent that I realized that it was a down-in-the-weeds suggestion... And I'm also mindful that a handful of state cfbs don't do LAL ... so perhaps that should be a breakout session or even a virtual meeting in advance of the June gathering?  

 

As a large group, I hope we find space for a visioning discussion, talking about how we can think strategically about the state center for the book network, setting goals that will help us push together toward shared goals, etc.  How might we develop and promote more effectively our role in the Parade of States at NBF, for example?  Is there a way that we might create a shared calendar of events that each of us could point to from our own sites?  We've tried developing new joint programs, but given that the lion's share of us are understaffed and overtaxed, I'd like to think about how we can take what we already do and maximize effects.  

 

I also wonder if we might want to think about adding a poster session segment to the agenda as a way to offer opportunities for individual state centers to present about specific programs. I find these sorts of sessions really terrific at other meetings I attend.
