SLANZA National Executive is calling for nominations for the position of President Elect.
The President Elect is successor to the President. The position requires this person to aid and support the current President while gaining an insight into the functions of the Presidential role of SLANZA.
This position requires an in-depth understanding of the workings of SLANZA and its stakeholders so it is preferable that this person should be either a current member of the National Executive or someone with previous National Executive experience.
The President Elect will be a one year term from July 2017 to July 2018, when they will take over the role of SLANZA President from Sandi Faulconbridge for a term of up to two years, from July 2018. Sandi will then move into the role of Immediate Past President where she will support, mentor and advise the President as needed.
Nominations are open from Friday 17 February until Friday 17 March 2017. Nomination forms are attached.
The SLANZA PD team is excited to announce our first G+ discussion topic for the year.
Inspired by a discussion held on the list at the end of last year, we thought the time was right to start thinking and talking about how we select books for our collections.
Our G+ discussions are designed to be slow, to allow time for deep thought and to reflect on our practices. Over four weeks there will be four readings followed by reflective questions. You can dip in and out of the discussion as time allows you, and participate as much or as little as you wish.
You must be a member of SLANZA to take part in this discussion (and it’s a great year to join with conference coming up!), as well as belonging to SLANZA’s Google+ Community.
We look forward to “seeing” you and hearing your thoughts – either for this discussion or one of our other professional development events planned for this year.
