2002 NY-NJ Chapter of the Medical Library Association
From the Chair

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being Chair of the Chapter is the opportunity to be in touch with all aspects of Chapter activities and to really know how much is going on for and by members. April is proving to a particularly busy and event-packed month!

  • On Thursday, April 4, the Chapter will gather for its annual Spring Dinner, this year held at the Williams Club. Organized by Maria Astifidis and George Wahlert, we expect a good turnout and relaxing evening in the company of colleagues.


  • On Saturday, April 6, Ellen Maleszewski will host a table for the Chapter at the SLA Career Day to be held at the Lighthouse. The SLA Career Day usually brings about 250 people together to learn about library careers.


  • On Friday, April 19, the Chapter will host a Mini-Med School at the Fashion Institute of Technology with medical faculty from institutions throughout the metropolitan area. The Mini-Med School has also sparked interest from outside the Chapter with other library groups from Long Island and from Rochester hoping to host similar events.

As we move towards May, I am also aware of the quick passing of time. Soon our Nominations Committee will be seeking nominations for officers to serve on next year's Board. And, the Program Committee will be sending out registration information for our annual meeting on Tuesday, October 15 at the Lighthouse in Manhattan (East 59th Street).

I hope to see many of you at these Chapter events, and at the Medical Library Association meeting in Dallas.



Kathel Dunn, Chair
