On tap! Bonding and bondage in beautiful Seattle

By JohnnyZ on July 16, 2013//Leave a comment

Coming to the end of a great meeting of law librarians in Seattle!  Met tons of awesome people, and received so many compliments about the law library — it really swelled my pride to know that folks around the country are paying attention to little old us in San Diego.

Takeaways for me:

1) feeling honored to sit next to Jean Wenger on the monorail discussing the Annual Meeting Programs Committee (AMPC) and changes that have brought a measure of stress and heartache to some members, and how we can help that.  There is nothing more amazing than a leader with a heart;

2) interviewing people leaving programs early to find out why [yes, having to find the bathroom was one of the responses, but more often there was a reason that made the attendee less than satisfied with the content or the delivery — lots of good fodder for my tenure on the AMPC going forward];

3) a Bastille Day dinner party with good people discussing access to justice…with the beauty of Seattle as a backdrop to working through these problems;

4) the brilliant sunset atop the Space Needle with Gina Catalano, my sherpa and friend; and most of all…

4) feeling a weight of responsibility for representing not only me and my law library, but our members & colleagues, and the profession itself…humbling.

 

I am so lucky to work in a profession with so many intelligent, hard working, and committed people who are also fun and goofy as all get-out!  [At least those are the people I tend to gravitate toward!]

Looking forward to a great year working on the dynamic AMPC with Amy Hale-Janeke and President Steve at the helm. “Beyond Boundaries” may not be about the S/M culture as Johnny Zero had thought, but it should still be pretty good nonetheless.
