YALSA recently finalized the slate of candidates for the 2009 election:
BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
Elizabeth K. Shuping
MARGARET A. EDWARDS:
MICHAEL L. PRINTZ:
Over the next several months on this blog YALSA will provide readers with the chance to learn more about the candidates via text blog posts and audio and video podcasts.’ If you will be at Midwinter you have the chance to ask the candidates questions at a Candidate’s Forum on Sunday, January 25, from 10:30 AM to Noon.
Has everything from the YALSA ALA site moved to this blog or YALSA wikis? I’m curious because I would like to see a more official election slate, like ALSC’s (http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alsc/aboutalsc/governance/election/2009slate.cfm) available on the YALSA site. It appears that many of the pages on the YALSA ALA site have not been updated since 2007. Sorry if I missed this announcement, or if the official slate is available and I just cannot find it.
The official YALSA slate is what is listed on this blog post. You can find election information on the YALSA wiki at http://wikis.ala.org/yalsa/index.php/YALSA_Election_Information. Also, there is a series of podcasts with candidates available on the blog at http://yalsa.ala.org/blog/2009/03/03/yalsa-election-podcasts/
