The Bridge - July 16, 2018 Print

A Message from the Headquarters of the ALA!

We're Further Refining Our Identity

As part of the ongoing Defining Our Identity initiative, we're once again soliciting 8 to 10 minutes' worth of feedback from our audience. This time, we'd like to gauge the impact of three potential brand positioning statements, which will help us make key operating and marketing decisions that affect customers' perception of our brand. You can read up on brand positioning statements here; they were developed using data and comments from prior surveys and exercises from focus groups and chapters.

Please take the survey! It's open through July 16. Your responses will help position the Association's future direction and help ALA make additional progress on its 2017–2020 Strategic Plan. Overall, these steps are intended to develop a clear, compelling and well-organized identity for our organization.
