Congratulations to our new officers:

Thanks especially to all of the ACRL-WA members who ran in this election; everyone received a number of votes indicative of healthy competition. We hope you will consider running again at some point! Thanks also to the 67 members who voted.
Call for Newsletter SubmissionsI've pushed back the due date for the ACRL-WA Spring Newsletter submissions to Friday May 1st.
I'd like to try something new for the newsletter. In light of the recent and well-attended ACRL conference in Portland--I'd like to ask attendees to submit brief (short paragraph) reviews of their favorite ACRL conference session, poster, keynote and/or workshop. If you were a presenter (including session and/or poster) feel free to submit a brief blurb to tell us a little bit about it. I would ask that these brief reviews include key takeaways--and links to session content and the session Twitter hashtag (if one was provided). Most of the conference sessions have slides and handouts available on the Program page of the conference website.
I would like to try something new for the 'full-length article' submissions. I'd like to solicit articles on the theme of 'Spring Training.' What do you do for staff training and development at your institution? How about training opportunities across institutions in your local area? We'd love to hear about any past or upcoming training and development programs that you've got going on at your institution and/or local area groups. Articles are informal, written in a conversational tone. The typical length for articles is around 500-800 words. I'm open to ideas for newsletter content- please email me directly with questions/suggestions.
Campus liaisons--what's new at your institution? Any new hires? Programs? Send us your updates for Campus News! The word length is 200-400 words (can be bullet points). If you have a significant program and/or project that you would like to share--we can do a feature article.
We are also accepting book reviews and conference reviews. If you've read a book related to libraries and/or librarians (non-fiction or fiction), or attended a conference and/or unconference that you would like to share with your colleagues, you can submit a brief 200-500 word review.
