Board of Directors

SLA is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. As representatives of that membership, the Board of Directors is the primary force pressing the Association to the realization of its opportunities for service and the fulfillment of its obligations to the membership, to the Association as a single entity, and to the library and information services profession.
