By Alicia Pappas, DC/SLA Treasurer-Elect and Lead Organizer of 75th Jubilee Gala
On Saturday, November 7th, over 90 DC/SLA members got together at Maggiano’s in Chevy Chase, DC to celebrate 75 years of our chapter’s excellence! An evening complete with dinner, dancing, and even some photo booth fun! Check out the album to see a collection of the night’s attendees making silly faces and lasting memories.
Much of the current board was in attendance and even got in on the fun by squeezing into the photo booth! Our chapter’s current president, Deena Adelman, addressed the crowd to thank volunteers past and present. With a focus on our Jubilee year’s events and activities, we need to take this momentum into the next year and use it to promote and further improve the benefits our members receive.
While SLA as a whole undergoes major changes and developments, it is important for us to reflect on our history and what’s brought us to this place. Many of our past presidents were at the event and reminded many of us how special this organization is, with dedicated and loyal members who continue to work toward a valuable network of information professionals in DC.
