NLLA is embarking on a strategic plan! The NLLA Executive is doing some work this summer which will guide our association’s activities and efforts over the next few years and would really love some feedback from you.

Please take a few minutes to respond to our survey. We really appreciate what you have to say. Not an NLLA member? We want to learn more about our members and non-members alike, so if you have something to say, this is your opportunity!

One lucky respondent will win a Chapters gift card of $25 (if you are willing to share an email address to enter). We are happy to receive anonymous responses if you prefer. The deadline to respond is July 27, 2012.

Thanks so much!

NLLA Mentioned in Tuesday’s Telegram

Telegram columnist Russell Wangersky had an interesting take on NLLA President Crystal Rose’s CBC radio interview about the proposed Access Copyright licence. Although he seems to be on the opposite side of the debate, we are pleased that this important issue is receiving some much needed media coverage in the province.

Check out his article “There’s More Than One Kind of Thievery” including Ms. Rose’s comments. We encourage NLLA members to weigh in!
