School Library Leaders Wanted!
06/02/2016

Are you looking to gain more leadership skills in your profession? Want to be part of a change-making network of school librarians? Now is the time to say YES to OELMA leadership! 
 
On behalf of the OELMA Nominations committee, we are currently seeking OELMA members interested in running for several OELMA Board positions beginning in January 2017. We are excited to bring you some brand new, interest-based Board positions which will allow you to focus on one one main aspect of library leadership! 
 
As most of you are aware, OELMA has brand new Board positions as a result of our Re-Envisioning committee. I have created a short (4 minute) Youtube video with the basics to catch everyone up to speed on the 3 new positions we have openings for, in addition to the open Executive Board positions of Secretary and Vice President. The link to read more information and apply is also below for you!

The deadline to apply is June 30th. If you have any questions, please contact Co-Chair Deb Logan or me at the email addresses below. 

I can tell you that for me saying YES to being on the OELMA Board has opened doors for me professionally that I didn’t know existed. I gained so much more than I ever thought from leading at the state level! With our new Board governance, being a Director can really be the catalyst for you to influence change and grow as a librarian (and we have a ton of fun too)! 
 
Thank you for your support of OELMA,
