President’s Message

  • An Exciting Year To Come!
    DC/SLA President Beth Maser says: “Working with incoming President, Blane Dessy, we have reached out to the staff at HQ and offered our chapter up to be the pilot for new membership initiatives. Both parties are extremely excited about seeing how we can increase our membership numbers and our reach within the DC-area and expand the number of job titles to which we can market. If you have any ideas or thoughts you would like to share regarding these efforts, please do not hesitate to reach out to Blane or myself.”

President-Elect’s Message

“We each need to make a commitment to ourselves, to each other, and to our Association that we will do what we can to keep our Chapter active and prosperous. We’ve seen a decline in DC/SLA membership and our membership roster is now half of what it used to be ten years ago. As President-Elect, I’ve been asked to devote my time to Chapter membership and determine what can be done to maintain and grow DC/SLA members…”

DC/SLA Chapter eNotes – February 2016

President’s Message

“To our seasoned volunteers I thank you for your continued participation and selflessness. To our new members or longtime members who have not been as involved with the chapter, I encourage you to attend just one event or meeting and bring in a new member to the chapter this year… Living in DC, you all know that participation and voices matter. I much prefer a cacophony of sound over silence. There is so much collective experience within our membership and countless things that we can learn about and from each other if we listen and participate. Please consider this my personal invitation to “Re-engage with SLA” and allow us to continue to thrive as a valuable professional resource for you and our profession in DC.”
