A big congratulations goes out to our long-time Slaw colleague Connie Crosby, who has been elected Vice-President of CALL/ACBD for the term running from 2013-2015. This position is effectively a six year commitment, with the succession plan running through each of the VP, President and Past-President positions (each for two years).
Many readers will recognize Connie as one of our founding members here at Slaw. She also has a long, successful track record working in Canadian law firm libraries; including more than nineteen years working in-house. Connie has been a past-President of TALL, served in a variety of roles for CALL, and has taught in most of Ontario’s universities.
I also think if you say her middle name really fast, it kinda sounds like “early-adopter” (or something close). She’s been at the forefront of most new web technologies; and not just in the legal space, or in Canada, but globally. From blogging, to podcasting, to social media, Connie has led the way.
The CALL leadership role is a wonderful opportunity for her, and big job. But I’m positive that Connie is more than up to the task!
We’re all very proud of you, Connie!
