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.
