Upon hearing of her election, Hoffman said, "I am delighted to be able to serve as President-Elect during this exciting time of transition for LLAMA. We have a tremendous opportunity to model a dynamic transition for division activities, structure and function, and as the home of leadership and management continuing education for librarians of all types, in all positions, and at all points in their careers, LLAMA can draw from the wealth of skill and expertise of our membership to make reorganization a success."
Hoffman will begin her term as president-elect in June 2017, and will become LLAMA president in 2018.
