Welcome back to those of you who just attended the Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. I know I had a wonderful time seeing many familiar faces, as well as meeting lots of new-to-YALSA people. I hope you had the chance to do the same, and to attend some of our many programs.
In the very near future I will begin the process of appointing people to the YALSA selection committees, i.e. BBYA, PPYA, QP, etc. After that I will begin appointments to our many process committees. To be considered for appointment to a committee you must have a volunteer form on file. If you think did one but aren’t sure, did one last year, or have not yet done one, now is the time to get a nice new form submitted. You can find it here: http://www.ala.org/ala/yalsa/joinus/committeevolunteer.htm . Not sure what your options are for committees? YALSA’s webpage has all the information you need: http://www.ala.org/ala/yalsa/aboutyalsab/yalsacommittee.htm
I’m very excited about serving as your new Vice-President/President-Elect and welcome this new opportunity to connect with members!
