Call for NETSL officers for next year

The following was just posted by the NETSL Corresponding Secretary Barry Hennessey on the NETSL discussion list. Please consider running for the NETSL Executive Board. It's a great educational and professional experience. Additional perks are that you get to meet wonderful people and attend the NETSL Spring Conference for no charge.

If you want to talk about the benefits and responsibilities before making a commitment, feel free to contact me via email or telephone 508-757-4110 x307.


We are looking for a few enthusiastic individuals to run for positions on NETSL’s 2008-2009 Executive Board. Participating on the Board will allow you to have direct input into the conference programs that NETSL sponsors throughout the year as well as into the direction of NETSL as an organization.

We are seeking candidates for the following positions:

· Vice President/President-Elect (a three-year commitment: the VP succeeds to the office of President, and remains a third year on the Board as Past President. The VP must be—or become—a member of the ALCTS division of the American Library Association.)
· Recording Secretary
· Corresponding Secretary
· Treasurer

You can find out more about the duties of the officers from NETSL’s bylaws at Terms begin at the end of NETSL’s fall meeting, held during the NELA annual conference (October 19-21, 2008). With the exception of the Vice President/President-Elect, officers serve one-year terms with the possibility of re-election for a second term.

If you are interested in running or would like more information, please contact Dodie Gaudet at; 508-757-4110 x307.

Ballots will go out by the first week in August, so we will need to hear from you by July 11, 2008 to prepare the slate.
