There was deliciousness and holiday spirit all around

Tours will commence at the Pitts Library main circulation desk. Due to space limitations, RSVPs are requested.

LEAF leadership through May 2020

Our fearless Library Employee Advocacy Forum (LEAF) chair, Amanda Adams, has left Emory to finish a library degree. We thank her for her dedicated service as a LEAF officer (as treasurer and then chair), including heading the LEAF Holiday Luncheon committee for the past two years. The remaining LEAF officers have decided not to have an interim LEAF chair, but instead are dividing up the chair’s responsibilities among themselves. In case you need contact an officer, they are:

  • Erich Wendt, Vice-Chair/Secretary
  • Peter Shirts, Communications Coordinator
  • Cari Lovins, Treasurer
  • Ayana Bohannon, Elections Coordinator

Remember, you can also always leave feedback via the LEAF online feedback form: http://bit.ly/LEAF-form

The election for new LEAF representatives is coming up quickly, starting in March 2020, so please consider representing your division in LEAF. The new representatives will begin their terms in May 2020, at which point the LEAF representatives will pick a new chair.
