MLA Seeks 2018-19 Board Member Nominations

The MLA Board of Directors is seeking candidates for the 2018-19 Board Election. In April members will vote for a MLA President Elect, Treasurer, ALA Councilor and one member-at-large board position. The at-large position will serve for a three-year term beginning July 2018 and ending June 2021.
The nominations process begins with an open call for nominations for these positions. All MLA members are invited to nominate a colleague or self-nominate. The Nominating Committee will review all nominations and may also seek additional individuals to meet identified needs. All nominees must be members of MLA at the time that the slate is presented to the board of directors for approval.
It is anticipated that 2018-19 will be another exciting time for Michigan's libraries and MLA. The board of directors will play an integral role by stepping up to the challenges and guiding the association's strategic course for the future.
