Election Prep

As the ALA Elections approach, it’s time to think about candidates.  Historically, AASL’s members don’t vote, which may be a result of the process or of the way the ballot is presented.  I’ll post YALSA and ALSC related candidates later, but here are some tied to AASL.

Sedley Abercrombie, Lead Library Media Coordinator, Davidson County Schools, Denton, North Carolina

Cassandra Barnett, Program Advisor for School Libraries, Arkansas Department of Education, Little Rock

Shannon DeSantis, School Library Media Specialist, Peoples Academy Middle Level and High School, Morrisville, Vermont

Vicki Morris Emery, Retired School Library Administrator, Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools, Burke, Virginia

Ann Dutton Ewbank, Associate Professor, School Library Media, Montana State University, Bozeman

Carl A. Harvey, II, Assistant Professor, School Librarianship, Longwood University, Farmville, Virginia

Laura Hicks, Media Specialist, Frederick (Maryland) High School

Jody K. Howard, Adjunct Professor and Library Consultant, Emporia State University SLIM Program, Denver, Colorado

Melissa Jacobs, Coordinator of Library Services, New York City Dept. of Education/New York City School Library System

(Note: this is not an endorsement of any of these candidates.  It is an endorsement for the need to have school librarian voices on ALA Council)
