Extractions: October 1999 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE This past year as ILA president has been one of anticipation and implementation of new ideas, a wonderful chance to collaborate and brainstorm with other librarians across the state, and verification of the hard work volunteers are willing to do for the good of all libraries. It has been an honor to work with a dedicated and hard working group of librarians. The executive board is committed in following a strategic plan that focuses on: With committee and membership input, the board made progress in each of the above goals. Ann Abrams and Ruth Cochran developed and mailed new membership brochures. Many ideas were discussed on how to help membership promote our libraries including the annual pre-conference "Lobby for your Library: know what works!" The Intellectual Freedom/Advocacy auction is continually well supported by you, the membership, enabling us to financially assist libraries encountering tough issues. Successful and informative ILA Regional conferences were offered in all parts of the state during April and May. A special thank you to all the people who worked to make the spring and annual conferences a success and also to those who took time to attend and keep abreast of new ideas.
