why you should run for Council

My ALA Council term is up next year. Originally I intended not to run again because I was going to be out of the country. Now I’m not intending to run again because I’d rather work in highly fulfilling low-paying jobs at home and not worry about saving money and time to make two week-long trips per year to cities I’ve already been to. I also don’t like institutional politicking as much as I thought I might. I was very happy to do it for three years. One of the best parts of Council meetings was getting to sit next to Jenna and talk about what was going on and our crazy librarian hopes and dreams. She’s on the nominating committee and has prepared a little page about why you should consider running. If you’re interested, get in touch with her. If you have questions, feel free to run them by me. [eli]
