November President Message

It’s November and we are in the height of fall colors. This time of year is my favorite and with Thanksgiving approaching it is a time of gratitude and thankfulness. There is so much I am grateful for with MiALA and you, its members. I want to thank you for your leadership and dedication to MiALA. I also want to thank our Institutional Members who give us many opportunities to continue our mission. Thank you.

I’d like to thank our membership committee who is sponsoring a mentoring program through MiALA. Mentoring newer librarians is a valuable exercise to acclimate them to our profession and guide them on their new career path. If you wish to be a mentor or a mentee please find the sign-up on our website. Applications are due November 8, 2019.

I am also wanting to thank all of our IG members. They have been busy hosting meetings and planning small events. It is this activity that keeps our organization moving forward. Thank you.

Lastly, I wish to thank the leadership of MiALA, our board members, committee members, IGCC members and IG chairs. Your leadership is appreciated as is your hard work and dedication to MiALA. You are the glue that keeps the organization together. Thank you.

Thank you all for being apart of MiALA and finding value within our organization.

Respectfully yours,

Beth Martin

MiALA President
