The SLA Board of Directors meet in person at the Leadership Summit and at the Annual Conference.  During the other months, the Board meets by conference call.  The agenda for each meeting is placed on the SLA web site prior to the conference call and members are encouraged share their thoughts, comments, ideas or concerns with SLA Board of Directors by contacting a board member (like me) or by sending an email to board@sla.org.

President’s Report: 2011 SLA Leadership Summit

By UNYSLA President, Amelia Birdsall

I left this year’s Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.  feeling great.  Three days in the company of smart, dedicated and fun information professionals left me feeling reinvigorated, and eager to get things done in our Upstate New York Chapter.  I spent much of the train ride home writing to-do lists and circling things in my notes, ready to get to work.
