Stronger Together in Washington State
By Elizabeth Brown, Central Washington University
After years of conversation and discussion, the ACRL-WA chapter finally decided to merge with the state’s academic division of the Washington Library Association. These transitions are always easier said than done. However, with partnership between the ACRL-WA board and the WLA office, we were able to make the merge official by September 1, 2020. The newly combined academic division is now 350 strong in membership and will provide future ACRL-WA members access to other resources in the state library organization. A significant thank you is owed to all the members of the ACRL-WA chapter, and the WLA and ACRL-WA boards for all their work on this merge.
