RAILS Announces Board Election Results

(via Gwen Gregory, University of Illinois at Chicago)

Thanks to all who voted in the May 2019 RAILS Board Election. A special welcome to our colleague Sarah McHone-Chase of Northern Illinois University! I look forward to working with all the board members as the academic library representative on the board. Please contact me if you have ideas or suggestions for RAILS.


Successful candidates are:

At-Large Seats

·        Scott Pointon, White Oak Library District

·        Selina GomezBeloz, Waukegan Public Library

·        Sarah McHone-Chase, Northern Illinois University

(Note: Originally, two at-large seats were available. RAILS Board member Liza Campbell resigned her at-large seat effective June 1, 2019. The RAILS Nominating Committee voted to have Sarah McHone-Chase fill the remainder of Liza’s term, since Sarah was the third highest vote getter in this category.)

Public Library Trustee Seats

·        Dianne Hollister, Bloomington Public Library

·        Susan Busenbark, Kewanee Public Library

Special Library Seat

·        Halle Cox, Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center

New board members will be seated in July. Thanks to all candidates who ran in the election. We appreciate your interest in RAILS!
