I strongly encourage ALA members to vote for Maggie. She has the fiscal background to serve as our treasurer. She currently chairs BARC and is very aware of ALA finances and challenges. She also has managed multi-million dollar library budgets at large universities. Most importantly, she has been dedicated to ALA, volunteering for committee work within various areas of ALA — divisions, ALA committees, etc

I am supporting Maggie Farrell for ALA treasurer because she has a demonstrated record of achievement in our profession and in ALA. She has been a tireless leader with much needed experience in dealing with financial and budgetary issues as a library director and as chair of the Budget Analysis and Review Committee (BARC) for ALA. Her various appointments in ALA have given her a broad and deep understanding of critical issues and how ALA needs to position itself as a viable organization into the future. She maintains a strong commitment to ALA as an inclusive association, and she will serve all of us well in this important position.
