We will inform those who have been accepted by the end of the year so they can take advantage of early bird pricing on registration.

Ensuring a Smooth Progression to New Operational Leadership

Blog Post from SLA President Kate Arnold

Ensuring a Smooth Progression to New Operational Leadership

Yesterday, we announced the departure of Janice Lachance as SLA’s CEO. The SLA Board of Directors is committed to ensuring a smooth progression to new operational leadership, and in keeping with that goal I formed a Transition Committee earlier this year. The members of the committee are Jill Strand, our president-elect; John DiGilio, SLA’s treasurer; Tara Murray and Debbie Schachter, members of the board; and Bill Noorlander, a member of SLA’s Finance Committee.
