Discussion

There was discussion about having a Spring event sponsored by the DCLSA, but there will likely not be the funds to have lunch at EBA's or something similar.

Looking into who is the owner of the DCLSA blitzmail account so that the group list can be updated. Current practice is to access the DCLSA's blitzmail and personal list within that account to email DCLSA members.

Discussed timeline for elections, and poster designed by Christopher. Christopher will either send finalized poster to Julie Blain or print out at Dana and send copies to departments/liasons for routing and posting.

Several DCLSA vacancies will need to be filled, including president, vice president, and members at large. Additionally, a social chair is needed, as is a liasion for Jones Media Center.
