With summer coming to a close, it is a good time to reflect on the great work that OLAC members have done throughout the year, from being elected to ALA offices to the wonderful presentations done at ALA Midwinter and Annual. OLAC members are innovating in the field of librarianship. There are few organizations that are as passionate about the work they do as this one! With the OLAC Conference right around the corner, we will once again showcase the wonderful talent of our members.

As the new Outreach/Advocacy Coordinator, I am thinking of ways to promote and attract more members to OLAC. Potential members will find a wealth of resources and colleagues in our organization. With this in mind, if you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can help promote OLAC, I would like to hear from you! Share with me stories on how you promote the organization or use OLAC resources in presentations, classwork, or projects so I can feature them in the newsletter and social media outlets. I am also seeking content to include in the Members on the Move column, so please send in any updates such as job changes, promotions, awards, newly elected positions, or an interesting presentation you have done. Remember that we all play a role in helping OLAC continue being an important organization. If you have any questions, comments or want to share content in the areas of outreach and advocacy, please contact me!
