Call for Nominations: HSLI President-Elect and Secretary

(via Molly Horio, OSF Healthcare Saint Francis Medical Center)

The HSLI Board of Directors is seeking nominations of current HSLI members to be candidates for election to two offices:  HSLI President-Elect and Secretary.  The President Elect will serve a one-year term that begins after the 2017 Annual Business Meeting in October, and ends at the close of the Annual Business Meeting in 2018, and will then serve a two-year term as President.  The Secretary will serve a two-year term that begins after the 2017 Annual Business Meeting in October, and ends at the close of the Annual Business Meeting in 2019.

HSLI members are encouraged to consider running for office or nominating a colleague who is interested in being nominated.  Self-nominations are welcome!  This is a great opportunity for professional service and leadership development, and there are typically only two HSLI Board meetings per year.  The responsibilities of the HSLI President-Elect are as follows.

Duties of the President-Elect

A. To assist the President in the administration of the organization’s affairs as assigned.

B. To serve one year as President-Elect, followed by two years as President, followed by one year as

Immediate Past-President.

C. To preside and perform the duties of the President whenever the President is absent and/or unable to

serve.

Duties of the Secretary

A. To record and distribute the minutes of the business meetings of the membership and Board meetings.

B. To report HSLI activities to state and regional library organizations.
