Career Center Task Force
Appointed in 2016, the Career Center Task Force, comprising five (5) SLA members, plus one (1) board liaison, and two (2) staff members is charged with evaluating the current SLA Career Center brand and offerings. As it is one of the few other sources of revenue diversification (outside of conference and dues), an analysis will be conducted as to the current state and functionality of the Career Center and recommendations set for how to proceed in the future.
This task force will begin their work immediately with the goal of having their final recommendations to the Board no later than June 2017.
The task force should consider how this vision (revenue generation) impacts what is done at both the HQ level as well as at the Unit level.
Data gathering will include examination of past membership surveys as well as new surveys to both the general membership as well as to the unit leadership to get a sense of what’s important to the membership as well as to gauge the value and benefit of the existing Career Center.
In making its recommendation, the task force shall define the financial criteria and requirements for moving forward with any of these opportunities, the benefits SLA expects to derive (e.g., influx of cash or expanded product offerings), and the impact on staffing.
