Nevada Library Association Handbook

Board of Trustees
Executive Officers




For a time prior to 1971, the president served a two-year term which ultimately meant a six-year involvement as an executive officer of the Nevada Library Association. The reorganization, which took place early in the 1970's, changed the terms of president-elect, president and past-president to the present one-year term. Most presidents have served before and after their term in various other positions within the association and Nevada libraries, with one president having served two terms a decade apart.

The President provides leadership in conducting the Association’s business and is the official spokesperson of the Association.
