Hello again, ELLA

Hello again, ELLA:

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable summer!

I’m very thankful to have support from both Jane and Ana once again, as I navigate my second year as your Chair for 2016-2017.

We had a great attendance for our September meeting and even got to meet a couple of new members. Thank you for sharing your ideas with us about the programming you would like to see. Jane, Ana, and I will do our best to make them a reality!

Here’s to another great year of law, libraries, and everything in between!
