Board of Directors Listing

Candidate Q & A
The candidates will be asked a series of questions by President-elect, Jill Strand. See how candidly they discuss the future of SLA and the information profession!

Question 1 When did you first join SLA? What made you decide to join then, and why do you still belong today?

Question 2 What changes, if any, do we need to make to keep annual conference as a vibrant, well attended event?

Question 3 How has involvement with SLA over the years helped you grow professionally and personally?

Question 4 SLA is an international organization. How can SLA involve and reach out more to members outside North America?

The SLA Cabinet Officers will host a Meet the Candidates series of Webinars to provide all members the opportunity to learn more about the individuals standing for the SLA Board of Directors. Be prepared to participate in the live programs, or plan to listen to the recordings before you vote.

Audience questions will be taken during the events, or you may send your questions in advance to Kama Siegel, the moderator for the series.

Let’s hear from a member on the importance of being informed…
When asked about the candidate forums set for the near future, SLA Nominating Committee Chair James Manasco said, “I can’t encourage our members enough to learn as much as possible about the candidates running for the Association board. Your Nominating Committee has worked hard to identify candidates who have much to offer the Association during these challenging times, but it is up to the members to choose those who will assume the “big chairs” and help lead the Association in the future. Please take the time to be informed about the members who have answered the call and graciously agreed to be considered for these important positions!”
