Hello library community and fellow information professionals!
The Greater Edmonton Library Association (GELA) is looking to re-evaluate and revitalize our services and programs to better reflect the needs of our community and we want to hear from you. We believe every voice is important, whether you work in a library or are part of the information profession more broadly, and welcome your input on how we can be a resource for you.
Our primary purpose has always been to create a sense of community between librarians, library technicians, library staff, students, and library supporters as well as create space to build meaningful connections. To build this sense of community, we have historically offered our programs to both GELA members and non-members, through in-person and, more recently, online events.
In 2020, we had to transition many of our programs to an online format, due to COVID-19, and cancel our programs and events that could not be facilitated online. Now, with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we are very excited about the opportunity to once again offer in-person programs and events and we want all of our programs and events to be relevant to the needs and wants of our community. We are asking for 5-10 minutes of your time to fill out this survey on how GELA can be relevant to YOU, even if you are not currently a member. The survey will be open for 1 month, closing on November 13, 2022.
To reach as many members and non-members as possible, we also request that you distribute this email and survey within your respective channels, with our apologies for any cross-posting that may occur.
We hope you are all enjoying this lovely fall weather and look forward to hearing from you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
