Are you looking for a fun way to get involved with OLA?  Do you like seeing your name in print?  If so, read on..

I will be handing off the baton of the OLA Hotline editorship, as is Diane Sotak with the OLA-Q coordinator position; the Communication Committee, which oversees these publications, is also looking to fill the OLA-Q Advertising Coordinator position.

Ideally, we'd fill the openings in the next couple of weeks so that the necessary training can take place and the new coordinators and editor are ready to roll for the next OLA year, which begins September 1.

Full position descriptions are below; feel free to contact me or Diane with any questions.
