All Sciences Poster Session for SLA 2015

The All Sciences Poster Session review committee is now accepting submissions for early approval.

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.

Looking Back with Jill Hurst-Wahl

Looking Back…as a director on the SLA BoardJill_HurstWahl

In January 2011, I (Jill Hurst-Wahl) joined the SLA Board of Directors after being elected by you. I joined already knowing much of what the Board was discussing, because I had been keeping my eyes and ear open, and because as a Board candidate I had been able to listen to the Board meetings for several months. I knew that I was joining a Board that had work to do!
