WLA Volunteers Needed for 2012

Now more than ever the Wisconsin Library Association needs the volunteer support of our members.  Libraries face challenges today we couldn’t imagine just a few years ago.  Technological changes such as the rise of the e-book are transforming our services. Economic and political changes threaten our financial support.  These concerns are overwhelming when we think of confronting them as individuals.  Together as a library community, however, we can face these challenges and secure a strong future for Wisconsin libraries.
Many of you have worked hard for the Wisconsin Library Association for years.  Thank you!  Others, like myself, have participated only occasionally in the work of WLA.  It is time for all of us to do what we can to preserve and strengthen the great tradition of our library community. Everything that we do as an association is more important than ever.  We need to work together to take the Wisconsin Library Association to a new level of power and effectiveness. 

Visit the WLA website for a complete list of WLA units including divisions, sections, round tables, committees, and task forces.  Consider volunteering to help somewhere in this association structure.  Volunteers are also needed to work at the WLA and division conferences.  Whatever your abilities, interests, or time constraints, WLA has important work for you to do.  Call or email the WLA office now to express your interest for volunteering in 2012.  We’re counting on your help!
