As leaders, the members of LLAMA are taking the initiative to build a new organization that will be collaborative, open, visionary, and passionate about our values. I look forward to working with all of you!" Moore will begin her term as president-elect in June 2018 and will become LLAMA President in 2019.

Barbakoff will begin her term in June 2018.
