The importance of these positions in YALSA for being advocates for teens, promoting access to information, and supporting each other as working with young adults, cannot be understated. For more information on the YALSA Election, visit the YALSA wiki here.
YALSA candidates running for President elect, Secretary, Fiscal Officer, and Board member positions as well as those running for ALA President (to find out their take on YA issues), were recently audio or video recorded in order for YALSA members to get to know the candidates in other ways. Start with the introductory podcast to what the recordings are about and how they are organized. Don’t miss the podcasts of the ALA presidential candidates with their take on young adult issues here and here. The video casts can be found on Blip tv, specifically here.
Enjoy! If you’re interested in podcasting the candidates next year, new ideas and new people are always welcome.
