What's Happening: Calendar Of Events


Your Board members met for a 6 hour marathon session in mid-August to plan our membership meetings for 2015 - see photo below of us hard at work!  But it takes a lot more time to put the finishing touches on the plan for the benefit of our chapter.  I'd like to thank all Board Members and Committee Members for helping make this such a wonderful chapter.  It takes a lot of time, dedication, planning and organization to do everything we do - some of which is visible but much is "behind the scenes."  We will be rolling out the 2015 schedule in the very near future.

There are multiple initiatives going on over the next two months.  In addition to our monthly meetings, we have two community service events coming up - Hospital Hopsitality House on Oct 1 and the Alzheimer's Walk on Oct 18.  We have Business Partners - Seltek & ABA Retirement Funds - conducting seminars for CLE (and CLM) credit, and a Seltek social at the Wine Loft on Sept 24, 

We are also in the recruiting stage for new business partners, and the Board will be hosting a breakfast in mid-October for those vendors who might like to partner with us.  In addition, Michael Keatts, our Business Partner Liaison, has rolled out our 2015 Business Partner Sponsorship package to our current BPs.  Our Business Partners enable us to provide some pretty darn good speakers and venues for our monthly meetings, support us at the Statewide Retreat, and entertain us with fun and creative social events.  If you have a vendor who might like to learn about our chapter, just send them on to Michael or refer them to the Business Partner section of our website.

Another "behind the scenes" activity is our annual New Member Reception.  Thanks to our Membership Chair, Mary Ellen Cleveland, we will host a luncheon on September 30 for the folks who joined our chapter in 2014.

We have a busy fall calendar and hope you can take advantage of some of the seminars, meetings and/or social events being offered!  As a reminder, check the home page of the website often under Announcements for all we've got going on.

Jill Shugart, President Richmond ALA
