Sheila Carlblom

Dean of Library Services
Indiana Wesleyan University

ACL has a dynamic history and it is so encouraging to watch it grow and mature as it reaches more and more librarians. There are so many opportunities before the Association to enable it to reach even more librarians and libraries during these challenging times. Given the economic situation we are currently in, finances are definitely in need of careful planning and monitoring. I would consider it a privilege to serve the Association in the capacity as Treasurer so as to work with the Board to keep the Association financially healthy and moving forward with fiscal responsibility.
