A long time ago, the CSLA state board members met in person. That seems almost quaint now in our times of cost saving virtual meetings. But we still need that face time (e.g., you know how emails can sometimes be misconstrued) to communicate with one another about the direction of our great organization. We meet in person in August (recent past, present, and near future board members) and at our conference in February. The board continues to be a dedicated group of professionals working to create, support, and nurture an organization that represents you, the California school library person!
The other ten months we meet online for a couple of hours on a Saturday. And there is a Northern Region Board and Southern Region Board doing much the same thing.
I'm writing this rather pedestrian post to let all CSLA members know that we welcome all members to run for board positions, and that our work is not mysterious. Our work is invigorating and the people are fun! Contact any of us listed at http://csla.net/ in the "About" section if you're interested in exploring ways to pitch in.
