I would also like to recognize our many unsung heroes – as ever, so many Chapter members have put in a huge amount of time and effort to create an excellent series of events and programs throughout the year. We couldn’t achieve any of this without you, and we are so grateful for all that you do.

I look forward to seeing you on November 10th!

Best wishes,

Emma Davidson
SLA NY President-Elect
