Hello everyone! K.T., thanks for getting us started! I'm thrilled to be working on this task force with all of you. Like K.T., I have never worked specifically on an ALSC Preconference task force, but I have been involved in ALSC events as a member and as a former executive director of the division. I've also got a marketing background, having working in children's book publishing before moving to Chicago and going to library school. I'm currently assistant dean at Dominican's Graduate School of Library and Information Science, so if you know any prospective librarians, send 'em my way!
