What exactly is IALLT’s Summer Leadership Meeting?
The SLM is IALLT’s annual general meeting, in the years in which we don’t have a conference. All members are welcome to attend. It’s mandatory for the Board and Council, although not all Council members always make it when budgets are tight.
Generally, there are two days of meetings to report on the current status of IALLT, its relationships with its affiliates, publications, public relations, online presence, K-12 outreach, and other topics. Each day is a combination of one large group and several breakout discussions, resulting in action items to be addressed by the Board in the coming year. It’s a great opportunity to see how IALLT works, contribute your ideas and get involved. The SLM is held at the site of the next IALLT conference, because it also gives the Board and Council a site visit and a chance to check up on the progress of the host and address any concerns well in advance. This year we are being hosted by Pine Crest School and Florida Atlantic University.
