GLBTRT Midwinter News: ALA Executive Board and Awards

GLBTRT Members Elected to Executive Board: GLBT Round Table members Peter Hepburn and Gina Persichini have been elected to the ALA Executive Board. Though they’re not ones to brag, we’re very proud on their behalf of the fact that they were elected by the two largest margins among any of the members joining Executive Board. Congratulations to them both! They will begin their three year terms at the last ALA Executive Board meeting of Annual 2014. Mike Marlin, another GLBT Round Table member, was also elected to the ALA Executive Board for a shorter term. (We apologize for this earlier omission! -JMF)
