Call for Nominations for 2023 MLA Board Election Now Open

Each year in September, the Call for Nominations for the MLA Board opens. This year we invite individuals representing public, school, or academic libraries, any staff position within the library (not just directors), any size and budget, and from any geographic region of Michigan, to step up.

The Nominating and Leadership Development Committee (NLDC) is seeking nominations/self-nominations for four member-at-large directors and the President-elect position, with terms beginning in July 2023 and ending in June 2026. The Call for Nominations will be open through Monday, November 7.

Our goal is to continue cultivating new board members who can expand the board’s collective wisdom with a variety of professional expertise, cultural backgrounds, life experiences, and geographic reach, and who can help MLA respond to future needs within the library field.

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 to engaging new board members to share their perspectives and opinions – opening the door to different ideas and conversations.

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 7, 2022. Submit a nomination by clicking the link belowFor any questions please contact Debbie Mikula, Executive Director at [email protected]
