|My presidential initiatives are about Creating Connections:|
|•||connections among our libraries|
|•||connections between the communities we serve and those who make funding and policy decisions|
|•||connections with prospective library workers, especially those in groups underrepresented in the profession|
|•||connections that allow ALA members to benefit from and contribute to their association and the profession in new ways|
|My initiatives address three critical issues:|
Advocacy on behalf of all types of libraries. Our libraries form an integrated ecosystem that collectively offer lifelong learning opportunities better than any other agency in American society can!
We need to develop a library workforce that reflects the society we serve. We will work to engage college students who might otherwise not consider librarianship as a career.
New technologies, new ways of communicating, open new opportunities for members to make the most of their ALA experience.
