Getting into Library Politics aka Why I’m running for a ALA NMRT Board Position.

I’m running for the Leadership Development Director position of the American Library Association’s New Members Roundtable (ALA NMRT) Executive Board.

I am going to use this post to tell you why… you may have already seen my candidate video here.

Also, the Asian Pacific American Library Association (APALA) did a member highlight on me this month, and I must say it pretty much sums me up, check it out here

So, why I am running for this position, and more importantly, why you should vote for me, and why I am stepping into the world of library politics: I want to get stuff done.

I want to get involved in NMRT to implement new ideas for leadership development. I want to help foster new vendor and library partnerships for awards and scholarships. I want to make sure that NMRT is doing all it can to create programming ideas that will nurture new and emerging leaders in the profession alike.

I’ll end with this quote by Shirley Chisholm.

You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.

Thanks for stopping by.
