Our goal this year is to cultivate new board members who can expand the board’s collective cultural awareness. We are looking for candidates with a variety of professional expertise, cultural backgrounds, the spectrum of life experiences, and geographic reach, who can help MLA respond to future needs within the library field.

We are looking for a President-elect, four members-at-large, and someone to serve as the ALA Chapter Councilor.

As we expand our search beyond the customary networks (yes – that includes those of you who have never considered this experience), we want to make sure that you know how dedicated we are in engaging new board members to share their perspectives and opinions – opening the door to different ideas and conversations. Our recruitment process, between September 24 and November 8 when nominations close, will be thoughtful, strategic, and respectful as we begin to look for ways to become a more diverse organization.

Self-nominations are definitely accepted. Throw your hat in the ring, we’d love to hear from each and every one of you.

The submission deadline is 5:00 PM on Monday, November 8, 2021. To submit a nomination, complete the nomination form online. For any questions please contact Debbie Mikula, Executive Director at [email protected]
