SLA 2013 BOARD ANNOUNCED
With autumn comes election season—and while our colleagues in the U.S. ponder who they will choose for their president for the next four years, SLA has chosen its executive slate for 2013. Congratulations to the elected Board of Directors for 2013:
President-Elect: Kate Arnold

LEADERSHIP SUMMIT DATES AND LOCATION ANNOUNCED
As noted above, the dates and location for the SLA Annual Leadership Summit have been set:
SLA Leadership Summit 2013
February 6-9, 2013
Crowne Plaza Dallas Downtown Hotel
Leadership Summit isn’t just for current SLA members in Chapter or Division leadership roles—it’s for any SLA member with an interest in leadership and in contributing to the future of the association. I attended my first Leadership Summit in 2012 and loved it. Smaller and more focused than the SLA Annual Conference, the Leadership Summit attracts leaders from everywhere in the association, resulting in high-quality, intensive, invigorating, and inspiring conversations about how to continue to build SLA into the association members want and need. If you’re interested in developing your leadership skills and getting more involved in the association, please join Erin McDonald and I in Dallas this February. If you have any questions about the leadership summit, please ask!
