NMRT Board Position/Title: Leadership Development Director
What role does your Board Position serve in NMRT? I oversee three awards committees, the NMRT Online Discussion Forum, and the Annual Social Committee.
How long have you been an NMRT member? I think for about 7 years.
What’s your favorite thing about NMRT? It is really the people. I have made so many connections through NMRT. NMRT is, in my opinion, the most inviting, inclusive group in ALA. I would also have to say that I have a special place in my heart for the NMRT Resume Review Service. I served on that committee for quite a few years and it was very rewarding. I have seen the great work done by the committee and the volunteers. It was always wonderful to hear that the service helped someone find a job.
What advice would you give to someone just joining NMRT this year? Show up and get involved. Don’t be shy about it. Everyone in NMRT is in the same boat or has been there at some point. It is one of the best ways make ALA work for you.
