[kids-lib] Call for Nominations for the 2019 CSLP Elections

Hello Oregon folks serving kids and teens in Summer Reading programs,

The Collaborative Summer Library program is on the lookout for board members. If you are ready for a new challenge that could positively impact kids and your fellow librarians, or are interested in a national leadership opportunity, this is something to consider. It would be awesome to have an Oregonian in any of these positions! CSLP is making some positive changes and this could be an exciting time to push this organization forward to offer more meaningful resources for our work with kids and teens in the summer.

While all Board travel/expenses are covered by CSLP, any Board position would require some availability in schedule and being able to leave your library for travel to the annual meeting and board commitments during the year. I recognize the inequities inherent in who can even consider this opportunity, and I absolutely wish the structures were different. I know Oregon's pool of librarians supporting kids is already working so hard in a variety of ways, and if this is not for you, don't worry! You are already working hard! If you are someone who sees summer reading as a key tool in ensuring kids have a safe place to go during the summer and a key tool in preventing summer learning loss, if you've never thought about working in this capacity and are curious to know what it might be like, please consider reaching out to the current board and nominating yourself or another librarian.

It's not required to tell me if you'd like to apply, but please let me know so I can give you a good reference. :)

Subject: [Statereps] Reminder--Call for Nominations for the 2019 CSLP Elections

Dear CSLP State Representatives and CSLP Members,

The Nominating and Leadership Development Committee is seeking nominations for election to the CSLP Board, with terms beginning January 2020.

The open positions are:

President-elect (President-elect, President, Past-President)

Secretary (2-year term)

Treasurer (2-year term)

Membership Committee Chair (2-year term)

Vendor Chair (2-year term)

At-Large Position (2) (2-year term)

Chair of the Children's Program Committee (2-year term)

We are seeking nominations through April 30, 2019. We have created a Google form at http://bit.ly/CSLP2020Nominations so you can self-nominate. If you know someone you would like to nominate, please consider doing so! The Nominating and Leadership Development Committee will follow up with everyone who is nominated. Elections will take place at the Annual Meeting in Indianapolis during the third week of September. State Representatives, please share this Call for Nominations through your local email lists and other places you feel appropriate.

CSLP encourages active participation of our members. If you are interested in serving on the Board but don't yet know about the commitment, please reach out to any member of the Board or the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee. If you have been involved with CSLP for a short period of time, you may be interested in serving as an At-Large Board Member. That is a great way to jump in and become more familiar with how the Board functions!

If you aren't quite ready to run for a position on the Board, there are a number of committees that you can join. They are listed on the CSLP Website, www.cslpreads.org<http://www.cslpreads.org>, under "Membership" but you must be logged in to see it.

Finally, whether or not you are interested in being a candidate in this year's election, the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee will be focusing on creating opportunities for CSLP members to gain leadership skills for work within CSLP or your own libraries. We hope to provide more information after the summer!

Happy Nominating!
