 The 2010 election for the Board of Directors of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) drew a record turnout, as more than 27 percent of members helped elect five new members to the organization’s governing body.

When the polls closed at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on 29 September, the election results were announced, as follows:

  • President-Elect: Brent Mai
  • Chapter Cabinet Chair-Elect: Ulla de Stricker
  • Division Cabinet Chair-Elect: Richard Huffine
  • Directors: Jill Hurst-Wahl and Sara Tompson

The five newly elected board members will begin their terms on the SLA Board of Directors on 1 January 2011 and will participate in their first board meeting during the association’s annual Leadership Summit later that month in Washington, D.C.    (Read the full press release)
