President's Column

Happy spring! I hope the nicer weather is now here to stay.
With spring comes excitement for our upcoming Annual Conference, which is now just six weeks away! I am looking forward to hearing our keynote speaker, Emily Drabinski, and sitting in on great presentations. Please review the conference activities on the MiALA website, and register soon. I am looking forward to seeing you in Grand Rapids!
The change of seasons also brings election time. Please watch for announcements from the Nominating Committee and consider serving MiALA to help our organization continue to grow and thrive.
