METRO’s Board of Directors and its staff are proud to endorse Jim Neal for the 2017 - 2018 ALA Presidency.
Currently serving as Treasurer, Jim joined our Board of Directors in 2011. As an advocate for librarians and other information professionals in all types of library settings -- public, school, special, government, medical, and academic -- Jim has been a thoughtful participant in discussions around policy issues, strategic planning, and innovation at METRO.
Jim’s commitment to the library and archives profession has been instrumental to many of the projects that have positioned our membership at the forefront of the industry, including Empire State Digital Network and our newly-launched METRO fellowship, to name just two.
In addition to serving on our board, Jim continues to be a thought leader for our community. His keen eye for the evolving trends in the field has been a beacon for the deep list of organizations he has served. He is a connector, a mentor, and a friend to many of us here at METRO and across our membership.
Please join us in casting your vote for Jim Neal for ALA President.
