Tonya Kennon for CLA Board Director

Statement of Concerns

I welcome the opportunity to serve with full understanding that the future of CLA and California libraries will be as bright as we make it. Our success is guaranteed if we are change agents who effectively diversify, collaborate, and communicate. I believe in our ability not only to adapt to change, but to direct it. To diversify our thinking by engaging and incorporating successful business models while collaborating within and outside of our profession. And to communicate our message, inclusive of our worth and our needs, to our members, our legislature, and our communities.
