ALA: Executive Board Candidates’ Bios and Statements:

One of the important tasks of the ALA Council is the annual election of the ALA Executive Board. As stated on the ALA Executive Board page, ” The Executive Board acts for Council in the administration of established policies and programs and is the body that manages within this context the affairs of the Association, delegating management of day-to-day operation to the Association’s executive director.”

Members of the Executive Board are elected from sitting members of Council. There is a committee that puts forward a slate of candidates and additional candidates can be nominated from the floor. We will be electing four new members of the Executive Board at Midwinter.

The candidate bios and statements are on the ALA Midwinter 2014 Council documents page, but so far down I almost missed them. So I’m reproducing them here:
