Are you a member of LITA? If so, make sure to vote for me for LITA president! Voting begins March 25, and closes April 22. Here’s the full LITA election slateÂ for 2016.
Why vote for me? Here’s a slightly longer version of my statement:
LITA is full of cool people, doing cool stuff. That’s why I originally became interested in LITA, and it’s why Iâ€™ve stayed.
And the tech thing, of course. LITA members have a deep understanding of technology. I always walk away from a LITA event feeling like Iâ€™ve learned something, or made a connection with someone who â€œgets it.â€
I also feel like LITA has been in transition mode for a few years. Even more so now, with a new Executive Director.
That’s not a bad thing. In fact, it’s pretty awesome, and a great time to be involved in LITA. It’s a time to remake LITA into the division we want it to be.
Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m running for LITA president – I want to help set that fire and get it started.
Right now, LITA has some major needs. Two of the most pressing needs are a new strategic plan, and permission to remake itself. Guess what? That’s what I do.
If elected, my goals will be to make sure a new strategic plan is in place, and to help get LITA kickstarted in a new direction. Iâ€™ll also work really hard to clear the rocks out of your path so you can do the cool stuff you want to do.
And to see if we can help remake ALA while we are at it 🙂
Not interested in voting for me? That’s ok – I’m running against Andromeda Yelton, who is extremely smart and techie and awesome, and has also done a lot of good LITA stuff. LITA wins either way.
Just promise me one thing: if you’re a LITA member, make sure to VOTE!
