Professional Development in Teen Services is vital to our organization and our members. YALSA should not just be about those we serve but about our careers and librarianship development as well. This is why we have taken the PD committee to an interest group. We strongly believe that Professional Development of all the YALSA members should not be contained to just 7 people on the committee but open to everyone.
We are now seeking energetic, career minded, members to join this new exciting interest group. Like the other interest groups you have read about this week, we are also seeking those who might want to lead this exciting new adventure. If you are interested in becoming involved in YALSA as a convener please submit your name to me (Brijin Boddy) at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, May 3, 2010. The elections will be held May 24, 2010.
