Having served as an ex-officio member on the LITA Board while chair of Bylaws, I am prepared to immediately start working with the Board to help LITA move forward and establish a unique identity within ALA. Recent reports have shown that many people outside of LITA are unaware of what LITA has to offer that is unique. As your Director at Large I will be your advocate to the Board and assist in communicating LITA's depth of knowledge and our role in ALA as well as in libraries.
