By the way, you are reading the words of the newly elected President of Pitt’s Student Chapter of the ALA! I’m excited to hold office; I promise not to get embroiled in some kind of nefarious activities, like the Teapot Dome Scandal or Andrew Jackson’s marriage to a bigamist (gasp!). I do have some goals for my presidency (ahem) and none of them include scandal. Mostly they include things like improving our connection with faculty and the ALA, trying to have a couple of networking opportunities, getting things members want done in a timely fashion. Quality volunteer and community outreach efforts instead of just more projects – I want us to really be involved with the projects we have instead of just having a bunch of projects that people go at half-heartedly. I’m excited for the rest of the year!
