SLA Names New Executive Director

The Special Libraries Association (SLA) announced that Janice R. Lachance has been selected to serve as its next executive director. She will assume the responsibilities on July 1, 2003, with her first public appearance as director-designate at SLA's Annual Conference, June 7-12 in New York. (During this meeting, members will be voting on whether to retain its current name, which includes the word "libraries," or change it to one of the two options suggested by the Branding Task Force: Information Professionals International, Inc. or SLA, Inc.)

In making the announcement, the organization noted that Lachance brings to SLA a wealth of diverse experience. For the past 2 years, she has been consulting with nonprofit and membership organizations in the areas of strategic planning, organizational development/transformation, and culture change. From 1993 until January 2001, she held a variety of positions within the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the federal government's human resources agency, starting as the director of Communications and Policy and serving as the agency's director from 1997 until 2001.

Prior to her OPM experience, Lachance worked with the American Federation of Government Employees. She also served on the staff of a number of members of the U.S. House of Representatives, including Tom Daschle. She earned a bachelor of arts degree from Manhattanville College, Purchase, N.Y., and a J.D. degree from Tulane University School of Law, New Orleans.
