LYRASIS FY 2013-2014 Board of Trustees Election Update:
Candidate Spotlight, Part 2  
Meet the Candidates Banner
In order to help our members learn more about the candidates for the open positions for LYRASIS Board of Trustees, we are featuring each of them in a two-part series here in LYRASIS News. Today's spotlight (article 2 of 2) features the candidates for the two open At-Large positions (any library or organization type). The elected candidates will serve for three years (FY 2013-2016). The election to fill the open positions on the Board will be held April 7 - 21. Voting representatives will receive an email with the link to the online ballot.
