Serving as an officer for CSLA is a great opportunity in several ways. Officers attend meetings which, are usually virtual where they hear more about what is happening in the organization and in our field. They also meet other library staff so they can share concerns and ideas. When they go to CSLA events they know more people so they have more fun. Of course, the most important reason is that they are giving back to CSLA, which has served our profession for almost 100 years.
The positions that are open on the State board are President-Elect, Secretary, VP Government Relations, and VP Professional Development. The Northern Region needs a President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and one representative to serve in each of the four Sections. (There is already one representative in each region.) The Southern Region has openings for President-Elect, Treasurer, and one Representative from each Section. Members currently in the positions may also run.
The election will be in April. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to serve in any of these positions. firstname.lastname@example.org
