The LLSDC Executive Board meeting was held Tuesday, March 19th at noon at KPMG. The Treasurer report and Membership report was received and approved by the Board. The first item discussed is the upcoming LLSDC elections. Laurie Green reported, by email, that we have two candidates running for each open slot on the ballot. The Board hopes to have elections start sometime in April. Remember to be on the lookout for your ballot!

Alicia Pappas reported that 133 people attended the 75th Anniversary Reception and that everyone seemed to have a great time! Be sure to check out our Facebook page to see some great photo booth photos taken that night.

The LLSDC Executive Board meeting was held yesterday, November 12, 2013, at noon at Arent Fox. The Treasurer and Membership reports were received and LLSDC is pleased to announce two new members this month: Molly Kasperek and Krista Stracka. Board members also discussed that the transition to the new LLSDC website is going well and a team of volunteers is working with Pam Lipscomb to double check that all links are working properly and that other transition issues are still not lingering. Alicia Pappas updated the board regarding the planning of the LLSDC Holiday Party, which will be held sometime in December (no firm date yet) and also noted that plans are coming along nicely for the 75th Anniversary party being held in early 2014. The meeting was adjourned at 1 pm and the next Board meeting will be held on December 9, 2014. And, for those of you who are interested, please check out last month's Board Meeting Minutes. Enjoy!

On behalf of your society, we want to extend our sincerest thoughts and support to you during this very difficult period.  Federal law librarians (and the contractor law librarians who support various agencies) are a very important part of our government structure.  You provide information services on a daily basis not only to your internal customers but also to the general public.  Your absence from government operations has been noticed by many patrons whether it be a lawyer who needs a book from the Library of Congress,  a taxpayer who contacts you with a general reference question, or a fellow librarian who seeks out your expertise on a certain matter.  You always answer your customers promptly with great courtesy and a sense of pride.  It is very unfortunate that your careers and livelihoods have been interrupted due to political wrangling on Capitol Hill.  We want you to know that your society supports you 100% and is grateful for your service to the Nation.   We all look forward to your return as soon as possible.  Your presence is definitely missed.

With our best regards,
