Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the American Library Association Website Advisory Committee, the purpose of this letter is to officially commend all of the American Library Association Information Technology & Telecommunication Services staff for their exceptional contributions and dedication to the organization and the membership.

Sean Bires, Maribeth Chapman, Louise Gruenberg, Matthew Ivaliotes, Sheila Joy, Jim Kanis, Jenny Levine, Irene Marquez , Tim Smith, Sherri Vanyek, and Donavan Vicha all make these contributions on a daily basis to consistently improve the Web experience for the membership while working on innovations to enhance connections and collaborations between divisions, committees and workgroups. Sometimes a thankless job, as technologies do fail, this group has continued to work tirelessly and respond to the needs and questions of members.

We formally thank them for their service to our profession.


Michael Stephens
