Darcy Kirk, as 2011-2012 AALL President, created a Futures Summit Planning Committee to develop an agenda for and plan a two-day Futures Summit, which was held in November 2011.  Attendees of the Summit explored issues regarding communication, member engagement, leadership development, mentoring, generational differences, and ongoing changes in the profession of law librarianship.
In December 2011, Darcy appointed a Futures Summit Report Drafting Group to continue the implementation phase of the Summit.  The committee was charged with drafting an executive summary report of the Summit and recommendations for consideration and adoption by the AALL Executive Board.  I have been serving as the chair of that group. 
The Drafting Group spent December 2011 and January 2012 reviewing transcription notes and survey responses from the Summit.   Reoccurring ideas and suggestions were tracked, tallied and later distilled into workable action items, organized by a set of four overarching goals.  A final version of the report will be submitted to the Executive Board and posted to AALLNet in late January.  Please be on the lookout for the final report.  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
