DALL – June President’s Message
Hello & Welcome!
It’s my honor to serve as DALL President for the 2015-2016 year. I look forward to continuing the hard work of Charlotte Thomas, 2015-2016 Past President, trying to fill her shoes!, and serving DALL members this year.
This year, we welcome to the board a group of talented information professionals who generously offered to give their time and serve in the leadership of DALL. Edward Hart is serving as 1st Vice President/President Elect, Kathy Dunigan is serving as 2nd Vice President/Newsletter, Liz Petty is serving as Treasurer, and Karen Dibble is serving as Secretary. Thank you all for your service!
As the new board meets this month to develop our plans for the upcoming DALL year and brainstorm ways to make DALL even better, I am tasked with thinking about my plans as president. Rather than include in this column a long list of things I’d like to complete, which would forever be memorialized in print whether we meet those goals or not, I’ll save myself the embarrassment and keep this vague. I aim to continue to offer enriching educational programming for DALL members, further develop DALL’s online presence in an effort to recruit new members and provide information to the public and legal community about our organization, and continue to offer a peer network for legal information professionals.
If you have ideas for DALL and requests to make membership more beneficial to you, please let me know. And, if you are interested in getting more involved in DALL, please volunteer! We make the organization what it is, so volunteering is critical to the livelihood of DALL.
Lastly, it’s membership renewal time, so please pay your dues and submit your membership forms now! We look forward to welcoming all new and renewing members at the next DALL membership meeting this fall.
Thank you for allowing me to serve as your president. I am thrilled and honored!
Nancy Scibelli Bouthilet
DALL President 2015-2016
