SCASL, Friday – March 26

So, I’m home.

Today was mostly a day of tying up loose ends – had to get Amanda’s Executive Board thank you gift signed by board members; had to get all of the book award presentations from the committees to post on the SCASL website; tried to find Past Presidents to give out the small gifts from Wednesday…I did get to hear Ann Martin (AASL Past President) speak at the General Business Meeting. She talked about how we need to be better at adapting to change and man oh man, is that the truth. My favorite quote from her today was “tomorrow is today.” We need to prepare for tomorrow because it’s here. She was an excellent speaker. I do wish more folks came to the business meeting. I wonder if that was because it was on Friday or if it was because there just weren’t as many folks as usual there to begin with and that is what made it seem like there wasn’t a big group? Probably a combo of both. At any rate, I had a good time.

    I have to agree–it was bothersome to see so many empty chairs at the business meeting. Of course I know you saw me in my normal “suck-up” front-row seat. One issue I think may play a role is that in the book each year it seems the “Business Meeting” is the most emphasized part of the section, and the special speaker has the look and feel of an after thought. Perhaps next year the book can play up with emphasis the guest speaker, and downplay that at this time SCASL holds its annual business meeting. What do you think?
