The results of the SLA Board of Directors election are in, and I want to congratulate Tom Rink on being elected to the office of President-Elect. Tom was a great candidate, and I know he’ll be an exemplary President-Elect and President for SLA. And I want to congratulate everyone else who’ll be joining the Board come January: Kim Silk (chapter cabinet chair-elect), Ruth Kneale (division cabinet chair-elect), Kevin Adams (director), and Catherine Lavallee-Welch (director).
Also, I salute Valerie Perry, Elaine Lasda Bergman, Dr. Saif Al-Jabari, and David Cappoli for stepping up and running for office. SLA is a stronger organization for their dedication and enthusiasm, and I know they will keep working to make the Association better. We truly had an excellent slate of candidates this time year.
For me, being nominated was a great experience, and a profound honor. I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to meet so many SLA members over the past six months, and speak with so many of you about the issues that are important to you.
