LLOPS President’s Message, June 28, 2012
Perhaps this should be entitled “Immediate Past President’s Message”, as Jennifer Hill assumed the title of LLOPS President June 27, at the LLOPS Business Meeting held at noon at Perkins Coie. Still, I owe the membership one last message as LLOPS President, so here it is.
It was great to have served as President this past year. At the meeting, I thanked many of you for your assistance this past year, serving on or chairing a LLOPS committee, providing me with input when requested, and for a few special accomplishments. The winner of the President’s Award for Excellence went to Barbara Swatt Engstrom, for another year of planning and executing an excellent series of monthly programs. Barbara also served on the Professional Development Workshop Committee, and was instrumental in both getting Ron Wheeler, our AALL Executive Board member, here for our Chapter Visit and planning a full day of activities, tours, and visits for Ron. Barbara, you are indeed excellent! Continue reading 'LLOPS President’s Message, June 28, 2012'»
Today’s Business Meeting swore in the new Executive Board for the 2012-2013 term (no oaths were actually taken). Exiting President, Crystal Sherman Norton, also thanked several members in the LLOPS community. Most notably, receiving the President’s Award, is Seattle University’s very own Barbara Swatt Engstrom. Crystal then began a new tradition by finding a worthy sigil for the LLOPS House, the lop rabbit. A mighty beast that will serve us as it is handed-down from President to President. Has the rabbit been named? This could be a bit much: Loppie the lop rabbit of LLOPS. Final Committee reports will be posted to the blog within the next few weeks. And lastly, the cake tasted amazing.
