SLA Election Results

25 Sep

The results of the SLA Board of Directors election are in, and I want to congratulate Tom Rink on being elected to the office of President-Elect. Tom was a great candidate, and I know he’ll be an exemplary President-Elect and President for SLA. And I want to congratulate everyone else who’ll be joining the Board come January: Kim Silk (chapter cabinet chair-elect), Ruth Kneale (division cabinet chair-elect), Kevin Adams (director), and Catherine Lavallee-Welch (director).

Also, I salute Valerie Perry, Elaine Lasda Bergman, Dr. Saif Al-Jabari, and David Cappoli for stepping up and running for office. SLA is a stronger organization for their dedication and enthusiasm, and I know they will keep working to make the Association better. We truly had an excellent slate of candidates this time year.

For me, being nominated was a great experience, and a profound honor. I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to meet so many SLA members over the past six months, and speak with so many of you about the issues that are important to you.

Thank you.

    Jim, thank YOU for running for office! Running for the SLA Board of Directors is a big deal. It’s hard to tell a candidate upfront what it will be like and what the person will learn. Undoubtedly, you learned a lot from the experience about yourself, about your fellow candidates, and about the Association. Now you need to figure out how to use what you learned, especially that new knowledge about SLA. Hopefully you can be an advocate. Perhaps you’ll step up and serve on an Association-level committee. Maybe you’ll run for the Board again.

    And do remember…you are not the same person that accepted the nomination. You’ve grown since then and your world view has gotten bigger!

      Jill, thank you for the kind words! The experience definitely changed me, and I look forward to being a part of SLA’s future. As always, I appreciate your support.
