Whereas, the Leadership and Management Section was established to focus on the art and science of leadership and management, promote research and advance professional development in these areas;

Whereas, the Leadership and Management Section has supported the work of MLA’s Rising Star Program, Emerging Leaders Task Force, and the MLA board through its proposal to sponsor a rising star and its “MLA Professional Association Value and Planning Survey” which will help identify aspects of professional association membership that new members, potential members, and emerging leaders find valuable;

Whereas, the Leadership and Management Section nurtures the professional development of its members through educational programs and contributed paper and poster presentations at MLA’s annual meetings;

Whereas, the Leadership and Management Section has furthered MLA’s Research Agenda through support of the Donald A.B. Lindberg Research Fellowship;

Whereas, members of the Leadership and Management Section have furthered MLA’s mission by serving as MLA president and by serving on MLA committees and task forces; be it therefore 

Resolved, that the Medical Library Association commends the Leadership and Management Section for 65 years of excellent service and accomplishment in support of the profession of health sciences librarianship.
