Member Spotlight

Thanks to the many interests our sections represent, LLAMA has a diverse membership including new librarians, directors, HR professionals, architects, fundraisers, and more.  Each month the Membership Committee will feature one of these members in the Member Spotlight.  It's a great way for you to you meet your colleagues and find members with similar interests.

To see yourself in the spotlight, just send an email to the Membership Committee with some basic information.  A member of the committee will then follow up with you.  It only takes a minute and the committee would love to hear from you.

Professional experience, particularly LLAMA activities
I’ve had a variety of positions in libraries but have always found a great professional home in LLAMA regardless of my job. I’ve been involved in FRFDS, LOMS, MAES (as secretary & chair), & most recently as chair of the President’s Planning Committee. I’m the incoming chair of the ARL Assessment Committee, serve on the GWLA Board, & am an external review panelist for ALA’s Office for Accreditation.

Best benefit of LLAMA membership
Networking with great colleagues I might not have otherwise met.

Most memorable LLAMA experience or contribution
Chairing a very successful President’s Program last month!

Why you would recommend LLAMA to a colleague?
The opportunity to meet and learn from colleagues with similar interests in librarianship.

How has membership in LLAMA helped your career?
Several LLAMA colleagues have served as professional references in job searches (& I’ve done the same for other LLAMA members).

What was the best book you read recently?
Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown

What is your favorite music album of all time?
Eagles “Hotel California”
