Dean of University Library Services

One of my favorite things about the Association of Christian Librarians is the emphasis on *librarians*. My vision for ACL is one that builds on member engagement, encourages leadership, creates professional development opportunities, and enhances existing, but encourages new intellectual property for the Association. ACL has been very well led, and consequently, we've seen membership growth, new grant support opportunities, and exciting new interest groups. I am especially encouraged by our increasingly international membership. My prayer is that this organization will continue to be a blessing to its members and to its members' libraries and institutions.
