Happy New Year, readers! Do you realize that now that it’s 2012 the YALSA 2013 election is a mere year (or so) away? The Governance Nominating committee is beginning work on identifying candidates for the 2013 election. ‘ We will be seeking people to run for the offices of President and Director on the Board. ‘ These positions are obviously not to be taken lightly and the committee can discuss the positions at length with interested persons and is available to answer questions.

If you are remotely considering running for one of these offices I highly encourage you to sit in on at least one Board meeting during the Midwinter conference next week. ‘ The meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • Board of Directors Meeting I, Saturday January 21, 1:30 to 5:30, convention center room C143
  • Board of Directors Meeting II, Sunday January 22, 4:00 to 5:30, convention center room C143
  • Board of Directors Meeting III, Monday January 23, 1:30 to 3:30, convention center room C143

It is the very best way to understand how the Board works and what the different roles are. ‘ Some committee members may be at some of the Board meetings, so you can feel free if you see one of us to come on over and introduce yourself.

YALSA has so many enthusiastic, dedicated members. ‘ I’m looking forward to seeing who among you will be our newest elected leaders in 2013!

2013 Governance Nominating Committee members are: Francisca Goldsmith, Kim Patton, Maria Gentle, and Michele Gorman

    As a member of this committee, I plan to attend Board II and III, if you can’t buttonhole any of us to ask for more information about serving on Board while we are at Midwinter. Please do ask your most niggling questions so that we can help you think about all you have to offer YALSA, your colleagues, and teens through your service in governing our division.
