    The details on each award are below:

    SLA LMD Karen J. Switt Leadership Award

    The LMD Awards Committee is soliciting nominations from the Leadership and Management Division membership for the 2018 Karen J. Switt Leadership Award.  This award honors a member who has shown outstanding leadership, served as a role model for others, and contributed significantly to SLA. In 1999, the award was named in memory of Karen J. Switt, a much-admired and much-missed LMD member.  For those of you who did not know Karen, here is a link to a November 29, 1999 article from the Chicago Tribune that describes her life. Click here for more information.

    Nominations are accepted for anyone who is a member in good standing of SLA's Leadership and Management Division. The nomination should include a description of the nominee's leadership activities in the past five years, as described above.  Self-nominations are accepted.

    Nominations must be received by March 31, 2019, 11:59 pm EST.   Please send questions and nominations to the LMD Awards Committee at awards@lmd.sla.org.

    As a personal recipient of the Career Advancement Award in 2015, I cannot recommend enough that you apply! Please get in touch if you have any questions.  You have 6 weeks to prepare your entries and you never know your luck.

    Wishing you the best of luck.
    (May the odds be ever in your favour)
