Shaffer to Step Down as Executive Director of SLA

Roberta I. Shaffer, executive director of SLA, has announced that she will leave the association effective February 22, 2002. On her decision to leave SLA, Shaffer said: "The Special Libraries Association will continue its course as the leading professional association for information professionals. The board of directors and I share the same vision for the future of the association and the profession. However, we are not in sync in terms of the pace of change. I have enjoyed my time working with the board, staff, and members. I am confident that the association will achieve its goals in the new century and meet the needs of a new generation of information professionals."

The SLA board of directors appointed Shaffer as executive director-designate last April. She officially began her tenure as executive director in September. Prior to coming to SLA, she was dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Texas-Austin. SLA deputy executive director Lynn Smith will serve as acting executive director.
