Many thanks again to everyone who came out to yesterday's All Member Meeting & Ice Cream Social. For those who did not make it, we wanted to share the big news that you missed!
First, the election results are in!
Vice President/President Elect:
A NEW DCLSA AWARD:
Additionally yesterday, we announced the establishment of the Jeffrey L. Horrell award. This award will be given annually to a library staff member who makes a noticeable impact not he quality of life in the library, has great enthusiasm for the DCLSA, genuine concern for colleagues and high standards for campus and community conduct.
In future years, recipients of this award will be nominated by library staff members. This year, the DCLSA Officers decided that there was no person more embodying of this award's key traits and deserving of the inaugural honor than Barb Krieger.
She has been an integral part of the DCLSA's Craft Fair, contributing to its annual success in every area from marketing, to vending, to creating delicious items at the Bake Sale Table (and for her coworkers' birthdays)! She has also contributed many hand-drawn cards for library staff retirements and other life events.
On top of her these contributions, Barb is a friendly, warm, knowledgeable and caring colleague who is an asset to everyone she encounters.
To celebrate this honor, and the new award, the DCLSA has purchased (and will soon deliver) a small keepsake for Barb as well as a new perpetual plaque that will stays in the Library, to which Barb's name and that of all future winners will be added.
