Welcome from the President

Dear Oregon-ALA Members:

Our chapter’s Board of Directors has an “At Large” member of the board, a position appointed by the Board’s executive committee.  Traditionally within our chapter, that position has been held by the most recent past president.  (Bylaws, Article V, Section 2 and 3.)

Gloria Martin currently holds that board position, but is no longer working in the legal field.  As a result of changes in her career path, she will resign from her board position at the end of May.  We know that you will all join us in thanking Gloria for her hard work on our behalf and the far reaching contributions she has made to our chapter.

On May 12, 2016 the Board met and appointed Lori Hughes to the At Large board position for the remainder of the 2016-17 board year.  (Bylaws, Article V, Section 6.)  Lori is not only a past chapter president, but has worked for the last several years on regional teams and with the national organization.  Lori has attended our board meetings as a liason/advisor, and we are lucky to have her continued support and contribution.

Kathee Nelson
President (2016-17)
