The First Annual ALATT Presidential Candidate Q and A

If you are planning to vote in the ALA Elections, but don’t quite know who to vote for yet, over at the ALA Think Tank, we are planning two sessions of Presidential Candidate Q and A. These will be town hall meetings where you can ask your questions directly of the candidates. Both Q and As will be held on March 28th.

Sari Feldman- at 10am (PST)
Maggie Farrell- at 1pm (PST)

These sessions will be one of the first and only things to be moderated on ALATT but all questions are welcome. The candidates will be available for an hour and we will try to get as many questions answered as possible. In order to maintain a cohesive discussion, all questions must be asked in the one Q and A thread that will be posted at the opening.  Please understand that it’s one person attempting to answer the questions of almost 6 thousand! So join us for the first ever ALATT Presidential Candidate Q and A. This is your chance to talk directly with the candidates!

Janie Herman suggested we come up with something after planking and owling.  So we came up with flamingoing.  Turns out… by the time we put it up, someone had already beat us to it on Twitter by only two hours! Boo.
