MLA President 2005/06
Transforming Ourselves, Our Profession, Our Association
Transformation: The word conjures images of change. It could refer to external or physical change or changes in inner nature. It is about moving from one place, however comfortable that might be, to another place that promises to be better.
As health information professionals, we are challenged daily to learn new skills, use our expertise in new roles, search the world for information, and deliver this information in new ways. Our profession has changed dramatically and is continuing to change. We are called on to be active participants in this change, not passive observers. There are new names for what we do. There are new collaborations with health care teams and with the community. There is an urgency to recruit and retain the best, brightest, and most passionate to our profession.
Finally, we are the Medical Library Association. It is our responsibility to continuously transform MLA, so that it will always be the preeminent association for health information professionals, meeting and supporting our professional needs through a common mission and values, advocacy, and lifelong growth and learning.
