Meet Jim Rettig ALA's New President-Elect

The head librarian at the University of Richmond (VA) is now also president-elect of the ALA. He received his education at Marquette University where he earned a master's degree in English, then enrolled at the University of Wisconsin, where in 1975 he earned a master's in library science. He has been a member of ALA since 1976.

Here's the story. Congrats Jim and good luck on a challenging job.

just to clarify

Leslie Burger is still President, Lorienne Roy will be President starting next week... then this time next year Rettig is President.

(oddly enough I drew a blank on Burger's name and when I googled ALA, president, the first name that came up was Gorman's)
