Presidential Chat

By Candace M. Cathey, M.L.S. – February 2014

My Fellow DALL Members:

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday spending time with your family and friends. Speaking of holiday, kudos to Charlotte Thomas our VP/Program Chair for coordinating our Annual Holiday Party at Sambuca, attendees had a fantastic time and enjoyed our signature drink, the Librarian Slingback. 

Our Community Service project with the Genesis Women’s Shelter was a success. Thanks to all who donated items and made monetary donations to their cause. The organization was much appreciated to our contribution. 

The day after our party, the Dallas-Fort Worth area experienced a winter storm that went across most of the United States. As a result of the inclement weather, the SLA- TX Chapter tour of George H.W. Bush Presidential Center at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas will be rescheduled sometime in the spring. 

The Board and Committee chair members’ hard work have paid off. Our Treasurer, Nancy Scibelli Bouthilet created a DALL PayPal account so members can make online payments. We implemented this system for the holiday party and it’s working very well. Technology Committee Chair Kevin Miles has created a newly redesigned DALL website. We are still in the process of creating a social media page for DALL so we can have discussion posts, event updates and connect with AALL and other chapters across the country. As you can see our newsletter has a brand new look courtesy of Katie Wright and The Texas Lawbook. 

Thank you for all your hard work! More updates to come.
