Thinking Strategically: AALL Nominations Committee Seeks Candidates for Office
While being criticized as a notorious AALL-basher (no problem, have thick skin), I do like our association's emphasis on calling for nominating law librarians who have demonstrated the ability to think strategically. There's plenty of well-qualified members who meet that criterion. You are most likely to find them at the SIS, local chapter level, or by their participation in SLA or ad hoc groups. Here's the official call:
AALL is looking for the next leaders of the Association. If you, or someone you know, have proven leadership experience, commitment to law librarianship, and demonstrated ability to think strategically, please consider serving on the AALL Executive Board.
The Nominations Committee is asking members to nominate individuals who would make strong candidates for the 2011 AALL Executive Board election for the offices of vice president/president-elect, and two Executive Board members.
If you or someone you know is ready to serve on the AALL Executive Board, let the Nominations Committee know. The chair of this year's committee is Kelly Browne of the Sacramento County Public Law Library. You can email her with your nomination. The committee is accepting nominations through March 1, 2011. The election will be held in November 2011, for three-year terms beginning July 2012.
