It’s been an eventful start to 2022!
First up, we updated NDLA’s web site, moving from StarChapter to Wild Apricot. The new design is up and running and looking good, but as with any site migration there are probably glitches – broken links, content that got overlooked, and so on. If you happen to notice anything that needs fixing, please let our website committee know!
On a less positive note, our membership chair Nicole Eckroth suffered some unanticipated health issues. She is going to be okay, but it may take some time for her to recover fully. We sincerely hope she recovers quickly and well. In the meantime, the membership committee has been doing a fine job of handling membership tasks while she’s been unavailable. However, we could definitely use a hand with that as Laurie McHenry has announced her intention to step down from the committee after many years of unstinting service. If you think you could help with the important work of maintaining NDLA’s membership records, please contact me.
Finally, we have officially filled the vacant President-Elect position. We had two candidates in the special election, Kerrianne Boetcher and Paul Amberg. With just over 70% of the votes, Kerrianne has won the position. Congratulations, Kerrianne! And many thanks to Paul Amberg for running.
I would close by telling you all to stay frosty, but Mother Nature seems to have taken care of that part for us this year. So instead, I’ll just close by thanking you for all that you do for your libraries and your patrons. Hang in there - spring cannot be far!
