Pardon my lateness!  It was purely an oversight!

I only have my ipad at my disposal and it is refusing to let me attach my document (it will, however, allow me to attach my vacation pictures but I think they would be irrelevant!) ;-)  I will send the document to Kirby and if she will kindly attach my word document, it will be complete.  For now... here's my report...  thank you for the opportunity to represent NMRT during the past 3 years.


NMRT Board Member Progress Report

1. Office Name: ALA Councilor

2. Office Term (Date: Ex. 2005-2006): 2011-2014

3. What kind of interaction have you had with your committees thus far this year? What support have you been able to provide them?

I continue to blog ALA Council Sessions "live" for my NMRT Constituents to follow along in the governance of their organization. This has seemed like a successful endeavor due to the positive feedback I have received.

4. What would you still like to accomplish in your office before the end of your term?

To continue to represent NMRT and its issues to the larger ALA Council until the end of my term at Annual in Las Vegas. I will continue on Council as a Council Member at Large and will continue to champion NMRT issues. I wish the new NMRT Councilor the best of luck and am at their disposal.

 5. Date of report: May 15, 2014

6. Submitted by: Susan L. Jennings
