It has been a long time since my last post and I have a lot to cover!
First of all, a million thank yous to the Conference Committee and all of the presenters at the 2007 Annual Conference. Speaking for myself, and after looking over the conference evaluations, it was an incredible success and an informative and entertaining time for all!
At the Youth Services Division Business meeting, I had stated that Mary Maxson will be unable to take on her position as Chair of the Youth Services Division of PaLA. At the meeting I had stated that I would stay on as Chair and work closely with Vice-Chair Denise Pulgino-Stout for 2008.
After reflecting on this wonderful organization, however, and talking with Denise, I realized that there is no way I would be able to do another term justice. Denise has agreed to take on the role as Chair for 2008, I will serve as Vice Chair and then, during election time, we will elect a new Chair and new Vice-Chair.
Many thanks to all of you who passed along the names of individuals for the Carolyn Field Committee and for possible candidiates for YSD officers next year. Many thanks also for the wonderful support you all have given as I have tried to serve this organization well. It has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my library career, as I have had the opportunity to work with all of you, very gracious and gifted people.
This week I will be attending the PaLA Leadership Conference and look forward to seeing some of you and passing the torch to Denise!
This week I will post photos from the conference!
Have a wonderful day!
