I am greatly honored to stand for election for ALA Treasurer and to serve our profession by providing leadership for the financial well-being of our association. Currently, I am the chair of the Budget Analysis & Review Committee (BARC). In this leadership role, I lead a team of members working closely with the ALA Treasurer and Finance Office to provide oversight for the association finances. This experience has provided me with insights into the financial and organizational structures of ALA. Of critical importance is process; ensuring that we follow ALA policies, respond to ALA Council referrals, and provide direction to the Finance Office. As BARC Chair, I have established the goals of transparency, clarity, and communication as we focus on immediate and long term goals.

As ALA Treasurer, I will continue this service in building transparency and clarity into association finances with strong communication to keep our membership and leadership informed for wise choices. Together we will advance our association by creating a financial infrastructure that will ensure our professional success and impact on society. I ask for your vote for ALA Treasurer.
