Election Statement:

I am
humbled to be nominated as one of the candidates for the CALA Board of
Directors. In recent years, CALA has grown much stronger and made many
remarkable achievements at all levels--local, national, and international. It plays
increasingly important role both in the Chinese American librarian community
and in the American library profession at large. It provides many opportunities
to its members for the professional development through networking and
communication both in the United States and abroad. As a life member, I am
fully committed to CALA's mission and goals, and would appreciate an
opportunity to play an active role in the organization. If elected, I will work
diligently with other board members and all CALA members to further promote the
growth of CALA by introducing CALA to new librarians and students at library
schools; to increase its visibility nationally and internationally, especially
in the areas where CALA is less presented; to find more ways for the
professional growth so that all members can benefit from both existing
successful programs and new opportunities.
