From the President


Greetings, OLAC Community! It is with great honor that I serve you as President of OLAC for the next year. My duties as President will be much lighter by the fortune to be following Immediate Past President, Stacie Traill. Her confident and steady leadership guided us adeptly through the challenges in assessing our approach to holding bi-annual conferences. I deeply appreciate the foundation she has laid to continue this process as well as other issues the Board has been considering over the last year.
