YALSA 2010 Slate

YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association, a division of the American Library Association) has announced its slate of candidates for the 2010 election next spring. As usual, the list is a who's who of people who give a lot of time and effort into making YALSA what it is.

Remember: you need to be a member of YALSA to vote! And you do not have to be a librarian to be a member of YALSA.

Yes! There are some great blogosphere names, including Jonathan Hunt, of adbooks and the Heavy Medal blog at SLJ; Jen Hubert from Reading Rants; Mary Burkey from Audiobooker.

I'm sure I missed someone..... Let me know in the comments. I know many of the candidates blog at the YALSA blog.

Who else has their own blog?

Oh yeah! There I am. "Elizabeth Burns," running against a hell of a lot of very brilliant people up for the Nonfiction Committe.

This is the type of thing with no campaigning. YALSA has a "meet the candidate" at Midwinter, and ballots are sent electronically with information about the candidates, so I'll keep you up to date on that type of thing.
