Reczek to Fill Vacancy on SLA Board

Karen Reczek will join the SLA Board of Directors next year and serve a one-year term to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Bethan Ruddock.

Bethan was elected in September 2013 to a three-year term as director, effective 1 January 2014. She notified the board earlier this year that she will be stepping down at the end of 2015. She and her husband are expecting their second child in a few months, and she anticipates that the increased family commitment will preclude her from giving the time and effort needed to be an effective board member.

Upon learning of Bethan’s decision to resign, the board asked the SLA Nominating Committee to identify two candidates to replace her. The committee proposed Karen and Deborah Keller, both of whom had been candidates in this year’s board election—Karen for president-elect and Deborah for division cabinet chair-elect.

When the board met in executive session on November 10 following their open meeting, they voted to replace Bethan with Karen. She will take her seat on the board on January 1.

Karen is the program manager of Standards Information Services at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Any large business structure consists of several units, and local teams are formed in each department who are competing with each other. Spy app can play a key role in this struggle.
