LITA leaders are responsible for the vision and values that guide LITA to have an impact on the profession and our communities, so it's important to participate in that process by voting in the annual election of those leaders and staying in touch with your elected officials to make your voice heard.

The 2019 election will be open March 11-April 3, and results will be announced on April 10. Eligible members will be sent their voting credentials via email between March 11-13.

For questions about your membership status for voting, please contact ALA’s Member and Customer Service (MaCS) at 1-800-545-2433, press 5 (International members should call +1-312-944-6780) or customerservice@ala.org. Visit the ALA Election page for more information about this year's vote and candidates running for ALA offices.

The Board thanks the LITA Nominating Committee for all of their work: Abigail Goben (Chair), Thomas Dowling, and Kelly J. Sattler. Thank you to the candidates for agreeing to stand for office.
