ACRL Election 2017 – A Message from the ACRL Vice-President/President-Elect Candidates

The ALA and ACRL elections are now open, and as candidates for ACRL Vice-President/President-Elect, we write together to encourage you to vote. ACRL is the leading organization focused on college and research libraries. We believe in the association and are thankful for all that it has given to us throughout our careers. We have enjoyed the opportunities it has provided us to work with and learn from the members of ACRL and know that these experiences have made us better librarians.

We believe in the importance of service, and see our role of Vice-President/President-Elect as serving you, the members. The conversations we have had with you at ALA Midwinter, the online forum, and informally have been invaluable. We look forward to seeing many of you at the ACRL 2017 Conference in Baltimore and continuing conversations about your hopes and desires for the future of ACRL.

Thank you for voting and for your service to our association. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the coming years.
