What an exciting time to be president of this great organization!
As some of you heard at our annual conference in Frisco, Texas, I became a member the ARSL board through the suggestion of a friend. One of my favorite things about this board, is that it is made up of practicing librarians, who understand what it means to be a librarian who wears many hats, from IT support to storyteller to janitor.
These volunteer board members have been working behind the scenes to ensure the fiscal health of our organization, to formulate partnerships which will benefit all members, putting on an annual conference and getting our message out.
One of my goals for this year is to improve communication with our members. I plan to make sure our board agendas are posted in advance on the website, so anyone who wants to listen in can do so. The minutes will also be available, so I hope you take a look at what our board is doing for you.
Please think about how you can help out and let any of the board members know how we can help you in your job.
I hope to see you in North Carolina next fall!
