So there I was minding my own business and I decided to see how I could help out my professional association, the California School Library Association. Downstream you can see a few of the responses that I received to my question. Margaret Baker, district librarian for Selma Unified, saw me coming, and the next thing you know...
I have been appointed to be the Region 3 Representative for the Northern Section of CSLA (they being divided into two sections). This means that I am on the NS board.
Should I wish to continue in the position (and I suspect I will), I will need to run as a candidate this spring.
I haven't mentioned here, but it's all about the connection for me. There is real power in working together to create change.
