Kate Fuller, Candidate for CT State Representative

Candidate Statement


It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as the Connecticut State Representative these past two years. I am excited to seek a second term to continue the work the state representatives have begun to communicate and reach out to area librarians and library associations, as well as library schools and students. Having been a member of ACRL for many years, and having served with the Chapter on the ACRL/NEC conference planning committee, I am very aware of the of the myriad of wonderful continuing education, networking, and professional development opportunities provided by the New England Chapter. I look forward to the opportunity to promote and publicize its activities, and to be a voice for my fellow members.
