Past President Report

One of the most important responsibilities for the Past President and the Nominating


Eboni Johnson, Past President

Committee is to put together a slate of candidates for the spring election.  I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t at all worried about this task during my 3-year term on the board. But the old folks used to say, “If you ready, you ain’t gotta get ready.” So I used this wise advice to start identifying possible candidates last summer — about eight or nine months before our recent spring election. We had group of really terrific candidates; I wish everyone could have been elected!  I’m so happy to welcome the following people to next year’s Executive Board:

  • Vice-President/President-Elect
    Katy Kelly
  • Secretary
    Angel Mootispaw
  • Board Member-at-Large (3 positions)
    Meghan Frazer
    Shelly Miller
    Gerald Natal
  • Membership Chair
    Katy Mathuews

I hope that everyone who wasn’t elected this time will consider standing for election next year.  And if you haven’t considered running for an office, think about it! ALAO is a wonderful organization to participate in, whether you are new to the profession or have a few years’ experience.  There are opportunities to be involved in interest groups or committees, to serve on the board, or even to volunteer to help with a specific task or project. Go to the ALAO website and click on the “Get Involved” link — fill out the volunteer form to indicate where you would like to serve.  Trust me, we will find a place for you!
