President Obama Nominates Former ALA President Camila A. Alire to Administration Post
From a District Dispatch (ALA Washigton Office) Blog Post by Jazzy Wright:
Congratulations to Camila A. Alire, dean emerita of both the University of New Mexico and Colorado State University, on her nomination by President Barack Obama to the National Council on the Humanities. The Senate must confirm Alire’s nomination before she can begin her advisory post.
From 2009 to 2010, Alire served as the president of the American Library Association. She is currently an adjunct professor at the University of Denver, as well as a professor of practice in the Managerial Leadership Ph.D. program within Simmons College’s School of Library and Information Science.
“We look forward to the Senate confirming Dr. Alire for this well-deserved nomination,” said Emily Sheketoff, executive director of the American Library Association Washington Office. “She will give the National Endowment terrific advice.”
