What's Happening: Calendar Of Events


As many of you know, Jill Shugart announced at the October meeting that she would be stepping down as President of the Richmond ALA.  Jill has moved out of the legal field and is entering into an exciting new venture.  The board and membership are deeply grateful to Jill for all that she has done to ensure our chapter is a great one.  Just some of Jill's many accomplishments are ensuring the chapter has been awarded the President's Award of Excellence, securing superior speakers for our meetings, organizing and structuring chapter leadership, and setting up the new chapter website.  We all thank Jill for her years of dedication and work for the chapter, particularly for her service on the board and as President.  Jill, we will miss you, but you have left the organization strong.  We wish you all the best in your new business!

With Jill's resignation, I moved from President Elect to President, and the nominating committee reconvened to nominate a new President Elect.  The committee nominated Kristi Mullins of BrownGreer to serve out the remainder of the 2015-2016 term.  At the November meeting, there were no nominations from the floor,  Kristi was elected by acclamation, and Kristi and I received the oath of office.  Welcome to the Richmond ALA leadership, Kristi!  A truly unusual fact:  Kristi is Lois Broadwater's daughter.  Lois is a long-time member of the Richmond ALA - and a past President!

I appreciate all the support that the board and members are giving me as I take on this new role.  I have quite large shoes to fill!  Thank you for your patience as I settle into my new role. 

Update on the rebranding proposal:  The proposal has been tabled for the present.  We will update you as we learn more, and, in the meantime you can follow the discussions on the ALA national website.

All the best,

Nancy Pugh, President, Richmond ALA
