Well, 2021 is finally behind us. On behalf of the ALL Board of Directors, I extend our wishes for a healthy, happy, and safe New Year to all our members, coordinators, and friends. We were able to get a revised version of our Spring 2022 catalog out via e-mail before the last day of the year, and it lists some 36 interesting courses. There are fewer classes than last semester, so you should get your application in early and don’t forget to date your check 2022!
While we have very talented and capable people on our board of directors, we need some new faces, new ideas, and new approaches to help us deal with the challenges ahead. The process of nominating and electing board candidates hinges on our collective ability to meet face-to-face with other members and so has been completely derailed by the pandemic. ALL’s board members, including those chairing committees, are looking to solicit volunteers to be on one or more of our committees or to stand for nomination for a seat on the board. The back of the catalog lists the current board members. If you want to get involved, please contact any one of them or Nancy Weida, our office administrator, at email@example.com . We very much need to enlist some enthusiastic people onto several committees, such as Hospitality and Finance, and people with a technology background would also be very welcome. Please think about it. We need your input, your ideas, and your involvement.
