Volunteer of the Year Award

Yearly we recognize, at the annual conference, an ACL volunteer that has exhibited exceptional dedication and has performed a volunteer service worthy of mention. This award is nominated by our volunteer leaders and selected by the ACL Board of Directors.

Congratulations to Beth Purtee, Technical Services Librarian at Trevecca Nazarene University, who received our 2017 Volunteer of the Year Award.

Beth has been chairing the Christian Library Consortium (CLC) since 2006 and serves the entire consortium by seeking and implementing benefits that assist as many of the members as possible. She has added value through programs with vendors and partnerships with other organizations, such as WALDO and EBSCO. Her work with the CLC team on creating multiple e-book collections has been a valuable asset to many of our member institutions. Over the past year, she has spearheaded a monthly CLC newsletter to improve communication with members about the benefits that are available. Beth has served faithfully and with humility. She is highly deserving of this award.
