Hello KLA members and Kansas Library community!
I find it hard to believe that over four years has passed since I was recruited by a friend to run for KLA office. Working for the Kansas Library Association is a time commitment, but one that I have found to be both challenging and rewarding. Today I have the opportunity as Past President to help guide the process of soliciting nominations for the upcoming KLA election.
The positions for which we are seeking candidates this year are:
- Second Vice President (4 year term)
- Treasurer (2 year term)
- Nominating Committee (3 positions with a 1 year term)
If you or someone you know would be interested in running for KLA office, follow this link to the nomination form: http://tinyurl.com/cmbc8x6
The call for nominations will be open from now to May 15. The election will be from July 1 to July 31. I would like to thank the other members of the Nominating Committee for their time and effort thus far: Heidi Blackburn, Heather Braum, and Janelle Mercer.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to one of the members of the Nominating Committee.
Chair, KLA Nominating Committee
