Announcing new ARLIS/NA Southern California Chapter Officers

This year the ARLIS/SC Nominating Committee sought nominations for two
positions: Vice-Chair/Chair Elect (1 year as Vice-Chair; 1 year as
Chair; 1 year as Immediate Past-Chair) and Treasurer (2 years).  We
received a nomination for each office, and the nominees have confirmed
their willingness to serve, thus these nominees are now our new office
holders.  We are pleased to announce the following new board members
for 2009:

Art Center for almost 5 years. She is responsible for a library (art

at the American InterContinental University, dabbled in audiovisual
sales to public libraries, did consulting work at Library Associates,
and was a Sr. Acquisitions Assistant at the Getty Research Institute

She has been a member of ARLIS/NA and ARLIS/SC since first starting
work in art libraries and has previously served the ARLIS/SC chapter
as Treasurer and as Vice Chair/Chair Elect. She is currently moderator
of the ARLIS/NA Public Librarians Round Table, and a member of the
ARLIS/NA Membership Committee. She looks forward to being Vice Chair
once again and is pleased to have an opportunity to remain on the
