It is almost time for ALA Annual! I am looking forward to seeing many of you in Washington, DC, at the great YALSA events and programs that are scheduled!
Here is an important one to add to your schedule:
Saturday, June 22nd from 9-10 am
Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Room 159A-B
At YALSA 301, you can learn about YALSA leadership opportunities and ask questions of members of the YALSA Board Development Committee – all current or former YALSA leaders. It is a great time to meet other YALSA members who are also interested in leadership positions! Many of us volunteer our time to take on leadership roles within YALSA. Serving on the Board or chairing a committee is a win-win! YALSA benefits from your experiences and passion for teens, and you gain leadership, team building, and career building skills.
Not able to make it to conference? I encourage you to contact me or the other members of the Board Development Committee to learn more. Even if you are not ready to run for Board right now, we would love to talk with you about the exciting leadership opportunities that are available in YALSA!
