Call for 2024 ILA Executive Board Nominee Suggestions

October 11, 2023

The ILA Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for the 2024 Executive Board Election. In April 2024, members will vote for the ILA Vice-President/President-elect, who should be an academic librarian, and for four Executive Board positions, who can be public, school, academic, special, or library trustee representatives, and the ALA Councilor, who can be a public, academic, school or special librarian. These are three-year terms beginning July 2024 and ending June 2027.

The nomination process begins with an open call for suggestions for candidates for these positions. All ILA members are invited to suggest a colleague or self-suggest. Submission of a nominee suggestion form does not guarantee the nominee will appear on the slate; the Nominating Committee will review all suggestions and may also seek additional individuals to meet identified needs, in order to develop the strongest possible slate. According to ILA bylaws, nominees selected to appear on the slate "must be members of ILA at the time of nomination;" that is, by the time the slate is finalized.

The Nominating Committee is seeking candidates who have strategic skill sets to govern a professional, nonprofit association. Duties and expectations of Executive Board members can be found on the ILA website at

For the 2024 election, skills especially needed include: a big picture focus/global outlook; the ability to act as a change agent; a commitment to actively participate and serve for three years; and the ability to implement ILA’s new strategic plan.

The submission deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2023.

To submit a suggestion, complete the suggestion form online. Please direct any questions to Heather Jagman, ILA Past-President and Chair of the Nominating Committee, at
