Full Speed Ahead Now Open for Submissions

How is your group preparing for and working to shape the future?

The Full Speed Ahead blog started in March as a way to jump start conversation about the MLA strategic plan, featuring posts from leaders directly involved in that plan. That conversation is now happening, both here and in many other places around the association.

Now, Full Speed Ahead wants to hear from you. The concept of “Full Speed Ahead” encompasses much more than what MLA is doing to transform itself. It’s an attitude we can all embrace, as professionals constantly seeking to do better each day.

We’re seeking posts about how you’re living out the principles of change, growth, and innovation. Tell us about what’s going on in your chapter or region, what your section or SIG is doing, or how you’re moving things forward in your own library.

Maybe your section or SIG is struggling to redefine its purpose in a new environment while still respecting the legacy of its past. Maybe you’re working through layers of change resistance to make your library more relevant. Maybe you’ve found ways to make your regional meeting successful on a shoestring budget.  

You don’t have to have invented the next self-driving car—but talk about some form of evolution, rather than business as usual. You also don’t need to be the world’s best writer. MLA staff can help you shape your story into a post ready for publication.

If you’re part of another organization with ties to health information, we’d like to hear from you, too!

Have an idea that you’d like to share with Full Speed Ahead’s audience of both MLA members and nonmembers? Read the submission guidelines and then contact Elizabeth Lund with a brief description or draft of your post.
