LITA Congratulates Lauren Pressley Their New Emerging Leaders Program Participant.

The Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) Board is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Lauren Pressley to the ALA Emerging Leaders Program. Lauren is currently the Instructional Design Librarian at Wake Forest University and co-chair of the LITA Distance Learning Interest Group.  In addition, Lauren serves on the ALA Committee on the Status of Women in Librarianship and the ACRL WSS Instruction Committee.

The ALA Emerging Leaders Program enables newer librarians from across the country to participate in problem-solving workgroups; network with peers; gain an inside look into ALA structure, and have an opportunity to serve the profession in a leadership capacity. Each participant is expected to provide two years of service to ALA or one of its units.  The LITA Board wishes to ensure that its’ Emerging Leader has a meaningful leadership experience within LITA, therefore Lauren will work closely with the LITA President and President-elect on aspects of the LITA strategic plan implementation.

LITA had a number of excellent applicants and congratulates these additional LITA members on being accepted into the ALA Emerging Leaders Program as well:  Derik Badman, Emily Ford, Wing Yee Vincci Kwong, Sally Ma, Ghouse Mohammed, Neely Tang, Joseph Williams, and Michael Witt.  LITA has a very bright future with such bright, rising stars.
