The author reflects on the new Web site strategy of the Canadian Library Association (CLA). This Web site focuses on the relationships among the chief elected officer, chief executive officer (CEO), the board of directors, corporate strategy, and the association and its members. He considered communications as one of the keys to any relationship. He adhered to the instructors' emphasis on developing mechanisms for members to engage with their peers and with the association leadership.
