Action: NIFL Director Sign-On Letter - March 4 Deadline!
A permanent National Institute for Literacy (NIFL) director will be chosen this year, possibly as soon as the end of June. The NIFL Advisory Board is currently drafting selection criteria for a national search that will be launched in one week or less.
Here is what you can do:
1) Read the sign-on letters
2) If you agree with the content of the letters and would like campaign organizers to send them on your behalf, send an email to:
newNIFLdirector at yahoo.com
before March 4 (or sooner)
"Please add my name to both NIFL Director letters."
Be sure to include your name, City/town and state. Though you may choose not to do so, it is important to include a title and organizational affiliation. Our titles give credibility to our statement.
It is also important that we speak with one unified voice: adult and family literacy advocates and professional organizations, the NCL, and legislators who all believe a permanent NIFL director should be fully informed in adult and family literacy practices and committed to the NIFL mission and functions described in the National Literacy Act of 1991 and Workforce Investment Act of 1998.
We need to do what we can to preserve NIFL's focus on adults and families. Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
