Vice President & Communications Chair, Coalition of Youth Librarians

About the Candidate and Platform

My name is Brittany Soder and many of you probably know me from my work with ILSSA and SCALA this previous year. While most complete SILS in two years, I have decided to work through the program at a slightly slower pace and take an extra semester. This puts me in an unique position to continue my work in SILS student organizations. In this past year I have cultivated my leadership skills as SCALA President and consistently planned programs and events as the ILSSA Social Co-chair. But why not stay with a group that I have worked with for the past year? As I pursue youth librarianship and work to complete my media specialist certificate I am ready to take the skills I have learned in the past year and assist with the work of COYL. If elected I will focus my energy on professional development programs for anyone interested in youth librarianship, as well as collaborate with other student groups to provide a wide range of interesting and fun events throughout the next year!
