In the most recent edition of the AALL E-newsletter, From the Desk of James E. Duggan, AALL President James Duggan announced some exciting changes for the Washington Affairs Office. First, at its fall meeting, the Executive Board agreed to change the name of the AALL Washington Affairs Office to the AALL Government Relations Office to better reflect the broad scope of our work, which covers federal, state, local, and international issues. In addition, Mary Alice Baish was named director of the Government Relations Office.
Over the next several months, we’ll be updating our Web site and the Blawg to reflect these changes. We appreciate your patience during this process! Please note that on the Blawg, you’ll now find all entries previously placed in the “Washington Affairs Office” category in a new category, “Government Relations Office,” along with more recent entries. Blawg posts through October 2008 are still available through the “Washington Affairs Office” category.
