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. 

Current Member Spotlight:


Eugenia Schatoff
Director
West Nyack Free Library
Nanuet, NY

LLAMA member since: 2012

Professional experience, particularly LLAMA activities

2013 ALA Emerging Leader, LLAMA/NPS LIS Program Outreach/Services Team (2014), LLAMA Financial Advancement Committee (2013-2015).  I’m an experienced leader with expertise in personnel administration, grant writing, budget management, technology and planning.

Most memorable LLAMA experience or contribution

The best thing about being active in LLAMA has been the ability to meet and work with librarians from across the country in so many varied organizations.   I had previously only worked within my local and state library community, so working on projects with other LLAMA members remotely from across the country has been such a new and fulfilling experience.

If you had not chosen your present career, what would you be doing?

I would have been an entrepreneur.
