As a life member, I am very proud to have had the
opportunity of serving CALA in many different capacities for more than ten years.
If elected, I wish to first and foremost assist the Board in creating more
opportunities for new librarians and members. It is my belief that CALA will
continue to succeed if we start now building a mentoring and training
infrastructure. Our members are our most valuable asset. We can and should do
better in supporting and contributing to their endeavor of becoming leaders and
accomplished 21st century professionals.
