New and returning DCLA members met Wednesday, November 16 for food, drinks, and conversation at U Street's Local 16. The weather was cold and wet, but the atmosphere inside was warm and convivial. DCLA President Megan Shiels announced some of the achievements and on-going projects of this year's Board, which include identifying a new listserv for association communication, consolidating DCLA Board documents into a cloud-based management system, and uploading recent Board minutes to the DCLA website. She also announced opportunities for all members, including positions in the New Librarians Interest Group, the Management and Leadership Development Interest Group, the Webmaster position, and more.
Our members have many professional associations to choose from in the DC Metro area. DCLA offers you an opportunity to be actively involved at all levels. If you would like to take an active role in DCLA, contact a Board member, Committee Chair, or Interest Group chair today. We would be happy to match your talents to our needs.
