Introducing the CLA Ottawa Network

At the 2011 Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Library Association (CLA), members voted to revise the CLA Constitution and Bylaws and change the Association's organizational structure. Part of the changes to the structure was the dissolution of the Divisions, including the Canadian Association of Special Libraries and Information Services (CASLIS) as well as its chapters and section.

With the adoption of the revised CLA Constitution and Bylaws, Networks have replaced Divisions and Interest Groups as the key units through which members can lead and participate in the professional activities of the Association.

To meet the needs of the library community in Ottawa-Gatineau, a new CLA Ottawa Network has been established to build on the work of the former CLA-CASLIS Ottawa.
