2019 ALAO Election Nomination Form
Are you looking for a leadership opportunity? Would you like to get involved in professional service for an ACRL chapter? If so, please consider nominating yourself for the ALAO Board. Elections will take place in March/April 2019, and successful candidates will take office at the ALAO Board retreat this summer. Come join a fantastic group of Ohio library workers!

Remember that you must be an ALAO member in order to run for office and to vote, so this is a perfect time to join or renew (https://www.alaoweb.org/join). Additionally, no member of the Executive Board, elected or appointed, may serve in more than one position simultaneously without formal approval from the board.

What does the ALAO Board do?
The Ohio chapter of ACRL has a mission of advancing academic library services in our state and providing opportunities for education and growth for library personnel at all levels and at every career stage. We sponsor an annual conference and spring workshops that focus on innovative topics and showcase Ohio academic librarians; we provide scholarships and awards; and we maintain several active, diverse interest groups and committees. In addition, we have an active mentoring program that pairs up Ohio academic librarians for peer, intergenerational, leadership, or student mentoring relationships.

What is my role as an ALAO Board member?
1. Perform the duties described for your elected position (see the ALAO Procedures Manual for the specific duties and responsibilities of each position: https://www.alaoweb.org/procmanual/index.html).
2. Attend the annual Board retreat (usually in June/July of each year; 2019 date and location to be determined).
3. Attend four Board meetings per year.

In 2019, we will be electing the following officers:
• Vice President/President-Elect
• Public Relations (PR) Coordinator
• Treasurer
• Board Member At Large (3 positions)

Submit this online nomination form by Friday, February 15, 2019, to be considered as a candidate.
