Long-time LLAM member and former LLAM president Steve Anderson was elected Vice-President/President Elect of the American Association of Law Libraries and will be sworn-in at the AALL Conference in July 2012. This is the first time a Marylander and LLAM member has been elected to this position. Steve is currently Director of the Maryland State Law Library where he has made his mark as a talented manager and thoughtful leader.
Chief Judge Bell of the Maryland Court of Appeals was delighted when he heard the news of Steve’s election. So was his staff of eighteen, who sent a big bunch of balloons to Steve to celebrate his election. Predictably, Steve said that his election would not be possible without the hard work and support of his staff.
One of Steve’s first outings as our incoming Vice-President/President Elect will be to share the stage with fellow Marylander and incoming ALA Vice-President/President Elect Maureen Sullivan at the LLAM’s Full Disclosure conference this coming March.
One thing we know for sure, AALL could not be in better hands.
