I am pleased to report that I have received volunteers to fill the two ARLIS/SC positions recently vacated as a result of Virginia Allison’s change in employment, and I am now able to announce the two appointments.
Rachel Rohac has agreed to serve out the remainder of Virginia Allison’s term as Secretary (through December 2012). Rachel is currently a second year graduate student in the UCLA Department of Information Studies, and she will complete the MLIS degree in June. She is also a part-time Reference Desk Assistant in the UCLA Arts Library. Rachel recently received the ARLIS/Southern California Chapter Student Travel Award enabling her to attend the ARLIS/NA conference in Toronto.
Cathryn Ziefle has agreed to serve as our Newsletter Editor. Cathryn is the Librarian for the San Diego campus of the Woodbury University School of Architecture. Cathryn recently received the ARLIS/Southern California Chapter Judith A. Hoffberg Travel Award, enabling her to attend the ARLIS/NA conference in Toronto, where she was a poster session presenter.
I will be updating the information on our chapter blog later this week and will also request to have the Board information updated on the ARLIS/NA website.
I look forward to working with Rachel and Cathryn. Please join me in thanking Rachel and Cathryn for their willingness to fill these positions!
