The Oregon State Library is looking for new members for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Advisory Council. We'd really appreciate hearing about any people you would like to suggest for one of the vacancies. Please suggest possible people by November 10th. You can suggest yourself or someone else, including anyone currently on the LSTA Advisory Council. Out of all the suggestions made, two people will be nominated for each vacancy. New Council members will be elected by the Oregon State Library Board of Trustees at their December 9, 2011 meeting. The State Library tries to have a good geographic representation of Oregon in the Council, which may influence who is nominated.
Please suggest one person per each survey response. You may suggest more than one person by doing multiple surveys.
We are looking for suggestions for:
Public Library Representative (1 position)
Disadvantaged Persons Representative (1 position)
Library User Representative (1 position)
School Library Representative (1 position)
The LSTA Advisory Council is a 13-member body that advises the State Library Board on LSTA competitive grants and statewide programs. Terms on the Council are for three years. Representatives would serve from January 2012 to December 2014. The Council normally has two all-day meetings a year; one in May and one in September, with special meetings as needed. In recent years, the Council has added an additional half-day meeting in May. All travel expenses are reimbursed for Council members to attend meetings. Minutes from Council meetings, and information on Council members can be found at: http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/lstacouncil.shtml
Thank you for helping the LSTA Council represent the Oregon library community. Please contact Ann Reed at 503-378-5027 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
