I am running for WVLA Academic Chair for two reasons. First, I would like to become more involved in WVLA and librarianship in West Virginia and secondly, I would like to work to create a more active academic section since I feel we have so much knowledge to share if we all work together. I look forward to joining you in enhancing and building lines of communications between all West Virginia libraries.

Angie’s goals if elected, include helping the organization work toward meeting its goals during this time of unprecedented change.
