FROM THE TRANSPORTATION DIVISION CHAIR
Time for another change in the manner in which the Division
has been operating. In this E-News release will be the information
concerning the candidates for the Division’s Offices of
Chair-Elect, Treasurer, and Secretary. The elections will be
held electronically and I will send an email to the membership
later this month on how to do your voting. The installation of
the new officers will be held at the SLA Annual Conference in
Toronto at the “Brown Bag” Business Meeting on Monday,
June 6. Those being voted into office need to be available to
attend a training session on Sunday, June 5 at the Annual Conference.
Thus, the newly elected officers and Bob Sweet as the new Chair
for the Division will not be able to attend the GTRIC Meeting
Conference Planning is basically finished. If you go to the SLA
web site you will find the Conference Planner and by searching
under Division – Transportation, you will get a list of our
planned activities. Remember the GTRIC meeting is really a good
buy, since you get treats in the morning, lunch and all day to
network with your fellow members of the Transportation Division.
Costs will be $55.
There is no charge for the business meeting, since it will be
a “Brown Bagger”. Please come and meet the new officers
and hear who has been selected as a recipient for the Division’s
Professional Development Award.
Our Open House will be a little different. We have decided to
charge $10, mainly to get a count of how many people to expect
at the function. We have the opportunity to see the IBI Group office
in Toronto and have their Librarian, Jenny Osther, (who just happens
to be a member of the Transportation Division) serve as our hostess.
So don’t forget to purchase a ticket for this event on Tuesday
We will have at least one no-host dinner on Sunday evening. The
Transportation member helping with these arrangements is Aarash,
Kalra. I will announce more about this at a later date.
