That being said, the Executive Board welcomes four new members:
Vice President/President-Elect: Keith Ann Stiverson(July 2014 - July 2015)
Secretary: Katherine K. Coolidge, Esq., MLIS(July 2014 - July 2017)
Executive Board: John W. Adkins and Donna Nixon(July 2014 - July 2017)
As I end my term at the July annual meeting in San Antonio, these four will add their names to the ranks of the many volunteers that dedicate a three-year commitment to the Association. My advice to them, and to anyone that desires to run for a position in AALL is that they listen to the needs of the membership, observe the current actions of the Executive Board, ask questions, speak frankly, respect the membership and the other board members (even when you disagree), and act in a way that you believe is in the best interest of the profession.
Good luck. I will see all of you in Chicago soon.
