Call for Nominations for the MLA 2020-2021 Elections Now Open

October 3, 2019

MLA Seeks Nominations for Board Service

Do you know someone who would be a great addition to the MLA Board of Directors? The call for nominations for candidates for the 2020 Board of Directors Elections is now open!

The Nominating and Leadership Development Committee (NLDC) is seeking nominations/self-nominations for three member-at-large directors as well as the President-elect position, with terms beginning in July 2020 and ending in June 2023. NLDC 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. Note: nominations will be reviewed and not all will move forward in the process.

Service on the MLA Board is an outstanding way to contribute to the organization and to make a positive impact on our library community. The board is entrusted with setting the strategic direction and policies that govern the association’s activities. It is an active board and expects its members to take an engaged role in the association. Serving on the Board of Directors is a significant commitment, but one that provides members the opportunity to learn new skills, grow professionally and personally, build their network and represent the voice of the MLA membership.

More information about qualifications and criteria is linked here.

The submission deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 1, 2019. To submit a nomination, complete the nomination form online. For any questions please contact Debbie Mikula, Executive Director at [email protected]

Thank you in advance for taking an active role in your association's nomination process and for encouraging individuals to apply.
