A Message from the President, Heidi Julien

Greetings from your ALISE Board! Even though it’s summer, we’ve been working hard to transition the Association from SBI to McKenna Management, Inc. The transition will be effective October 1, but as you might imagine, there are many details to be sorted out. In addition, we’ve been planning our inaugural Leadership Academy for February 2019, organizing webinars, starting to plan our 2020 annual conference, and maintaining our focus on our strategic plan. Please remember – just because our annual conference has moved to September in 2019, doesn’t mean we don’t count on your continued membership support. Please renew your membership when it comes due – the ongoing success of your Association depends on it! You are always welcome to direct questions or concerns to any Board member. Questions about SIGs can be directed to Nicole Cooke, questions about membership can go to Cecilia Salvatore, and questions about external relations can go to Rong Tang. Best wishes to all our members for a successful academic year.

ALISE to Contract with McKenna Management in October

Beginning October 1, 2018, ALISE will transition from SBI to McKenna Management Inc. for its management services. Following a thorough search for a new firm in May and June, McKenna Management was selected. This transition was necessary for both financial and operational reasons. Special thanks to ALISE member Tom Lipinski (Milwaukee) for reviewing our contract with McKenna Management in June of this year.

The ALISE Board, on behalf of all ALISE members, would like to thank outgoing Executive Director Andrew Estep, and all the other SBI staff who supported our work over the past five years. In particular, we thank Karen Thompson, Sara Dyel, Louise Miller, Alope Pardee, Shantaé Young, and Michelle Geller. We sincerely appreciate your efforts on behalf of ALISE!
