CLiC Honored with Award

In a surprise announcement at the recent 2017 Colorado Association of Libraries annual CAL Awards banquet, CLiC received the 2017 President’s Award!

During her introduction of the award, CAL President Dana Abbey shared these thoughts:

“The recipient of the 2017 President’s Award is a colleague to all who work in and support libraries in Colorado. They are eager to share their skills and expertise, but are just as happy to listen to your needs, concerns, and ideas. They log thousands of miles a year traversing lone two-lane highways, treacherous mountain passes, and rush-hour traffic to provide training, support, and materials.

“I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 President’s Award is the staff of the Colorado Library Consortium, or as most of us say, “CLiC.” I would like Jim Duncan, Executive Director, to accept the award on behalf of CLiC, and would also like to have any CLiC staff join us on stage. The CLiC dream team includes:

  • Ross Callender
  • Sandy Messick
  • Sara Wright
  • Kira Zimmerman
  • Lauren Conley
  • Bob Bennhoff
  • Sharon Walker
  • Ashley-Sneesby-Stippich
  • Jo Hunter
  • Andrea Pettegrew

“Congratulations, and thank you for supporting vital library services including AspenCat, the Library Courier, the CLiC Spring Workshops (as well as other professional development), Colleague on Call, Electronic Resources licensing, and just generally being awesome!”
