The DC Chapter of SLA has posted a great interview with SLA President Anne Caputo, as part of its January/February 2010 Chapter Notes (PDF file). In the interview, starting on Page 19, Anne talks about her experiences with SLA and plans for her presidential year, including "making the findings of the Alignment Project usable in practical ways for our members."
One of the first results of the Alignment Project was the unsuccessful effort to change the name of the association (or success in keeping the name SLA, whichever you prefer). Anne has called on Mary Ellen Bates to promote and develop tools to use the findings of the Alignment Project, which is meant to help information professionals demonstrate their value. (Mary Ellen is SLA's Division Cabinet Chair-Elect.) In the interview, Anne also mentions that SLA is working on its first Code of Ethics.
As a side note, on Page 21 of the newsletter there is a picture of Anne and other SLA leaders from her Oct. 7 visit to the New Jersey Chapter.
