Betsy Blankenship, Ohio State University, Marion
I attended the ALAO Leadership retreat at Deer Creek Lodge, July 16-17 and met many of the board members with whom I will be serving. Since then, I have been working with the President and Past President to clarify membership on the Conference Planning Committee. The committee is not yet complete for the 2013 conference; but it will be confirmed soon and then we will begin work on the 2013 Annual Conference theme and planning. The site has been selected and we will hold the 2013 Annual Conference at The University Center on the Kent State Stark Campus.
In addition, I have been working with the President, Past President and Manual Revisions Coordinator in reviewing the procedures manual for changes and revisions and am beginning to plan the next ALAO Leadership Retreat.
