  • President's Message - Fall 2019

    Greetings All!

    We are finally approaching the official end of summer although, from the temperatures outside today as I write this, that is not yet evident.  I hope you all had a bit of time to relax and refresh these past few months.

    For NJ SLA, the summer was a time for dine-arounds (no host dinners) and planning programs for the future.  Coming up next, the Holiday Party and Annual Business Meeting.  Tentative date, December 11th.

    Plans are also underway for the 85th Anniversary Celebration of the Founding of the NJ Chapter. SAVE THE DATE: Tuesday, April 28, 2020. Location: Hyatt Regency New Brunswick.

    Summer also brought a call for nominations for the chapter's Executive Board.  Thanks go to Karen Botkin and her nominating committee, Sue Gleckner and Carol Paszamant.  We are fortunate that a few energetic people, committed to the continuation of this organization have volunteered to lead us into the next decade.  Nominations and self-nominations are open until September 20th.

    I encourage you all to consider building your resume and volunteering to assist Angela Pagliaro as she appoints people to head up the various committees that will help the group move forward.

    As we move into the 85th year of the NJ Chapter's existence, Louise Deis is investigating options to combine the archives of the NJ Chapter with the archives of the Greater Princeton-Trenton Area Chapter.  Digitization is one option on the table.  If you have experience  with this type of activity, please contact Louise to participate in the upcoming discussions.

    From HQ and the SLA BOARD: 

    • Virtual Career Fair– October 15, 12-3 p.m. (ET)
    • Dates and location for the next LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM have been announced, January 18-20, 2020 at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner in McLean, VA. All members welcome.  Please attend to learn about how SLA functions and how you can contribute to SLA.  More info coming soon.
    • Member Referral Program… Details coming soon.
    • Unit Restructuring Proposal – proposal to restructure divisions and chapters into "COMMUNITIES". Search CONNECT or contact me if interested.

    Thanks in advance for your input and energy.
