Tom will serve as president-elect in 2015, as president in 2016, and as past president in 2017. Joining him on the board for 2015-2017 are the following SLA members:

  • Kim Silk, chapter cabinet chair-elect;
  • Ruth Kneale, division cabinet chair-elect;
  • Kevin Adams, director; and
  • Catherine Lavallee-Welch, director.

In addition to electing the new board members, SLA members also overwhelmingly approved two changes to the association’s bylaws. The changes are as follows:

  • Recognizing the joint cabinet as an official body of the association; and
  • Allowing caucuses to be formed based on geography.
