Hi kids-lib folks!

It's about that time.  The Children's Services Division (CSD) is seeking
nominations for the 2010-2011 OLA year.  Please consider nominating a
peer or throwing your own hat into the ring.

We need to find folks to fill the following upcoming vacancies:

Summer Reading Chair-Elect

Chair-Elect serves on the Programs Planning Committee for the 2011 OLA
Conference and slowly transitions into the role of Chair during the
2011-2012 year.  Being chair is totally fun.  You get to meet new
people, travel around the state, and help work on projects that make a
difference to Oregon's children.  For instance, I was able to help
create the Oregon Reader's Choice Award (ORCA).  It has been a blast!

Summer Reading Chair-Elect represents CSD at the annual Collaborative
Summer Library Program (CSLP) meeting and works with the current Summer
Reading Chair to collect Oregon recommendations for artwork, slogans,
etc.  The Summer Reading Chair gets to attend the CSLP meeting and
shepherd delivery of the SRP manuals.  (Although I don't know where the
2011 or 2012 CSLP meetings are taking place.. just imagine if one of
them ends up in Hawaii!!  Wouldn't you feel awful if you didn't run and
ended up missing out on Hawaii?!  Sure, you might end up in Sheboygan or
Billings.. but let's think positive!).

Both positions get to develop a workshop, too.  The Chair organizes the
Fall Workshop and the Summer Reading Chair organizes the Spring
Workshop.  This is a great opportunity to help inject some phenomenal
Continuing Education into the state.  

The organization has had some fantastic recent leaders, so don't worry
that you will be dropped into something unprepared.  You will have
friends surrounding you!!

Drop me a line and let me know if you're interested.

Best wishes,

Rick Samuelson, Youth Services Librarian
Chair - Children's Services Division of OLA
Washington County Cooperative Library Services
