The awards committee is soliciting nominations from the Leadership and Management Division for the 2012 Karen J. Switt Leadership Award.
Each year, the Leadership & Management Division honors a member who has shown outstanding leadership, served as a role model for others, and contributed significantly to SLA. In 1999, the award was named in memory of Karen J. Switt, a much-admired and much-missed LMD member. For those of you who did not know Karen, here is a linkto an November 29, 1999 article from the Chicago Tribune that describes her life.
To nominate someone for this award, please send an email to Ethel M Salonen (email@example.com). Please include in your email why this individual exhibits the qualities of Karen J. Switt – outstanding leadership, a role model, and one has made significant contributions to SLA. We need the nominations by the close of business on Friday, June 29, 2012.
Thank you and feel free to contact me with questions.
