The Taxonomy Division Needs You!


The Taxonomy Division Needs You!

Serving on the Division board is a great opportunity to develop leadership and management skills, meet and work with others in the association and the field, and influence the direction of a new and vibrant Division. If not you, who? Have someone you think would be an asset to the board? Consider nominating that person!

We have the following Executive Board openings for 2016:

Chair-Elect / Chair / Past Chair (3-Year Term)
This individual serves one year as Chair-elect, effective January 2016, and becomes Chair of the Division in January 2017 or earlier, if the Chair is unable to serve. This individual will serve as Past-chair in 2018. The Chair-elect and current Chair are asked to represent the Division at the Division Cabinet meetings at the SLA Annual Conference and possibly, the Leadership Summit, in addition to participating in regular Division board meetings via webinar.

Treasurer (2-Year Term)
The Division treasurer has two main duties: 1) handle the Division’s money, and 2) keep Division leadership and the larger SLA leadership informed about the financial activity and health of the Division. The treasurer fills out monthly and yearly reports to document this activity and is a signatory on the Division’s bank account. It’s a great way to learn about the financial side of running an organization.

Nomination process
If you want to nominate someone (or yourself!), please send the nomination by e-mail to by Friday, Sept. 11, 9 AM Central. For questions or more details about either position, please contact Kathleen McElhinney.

Thank you!
Kathleen McElhinney, Chair, 2016 Taxonomy Division Nominations Committee
