April 16th was a busy day for NCNMLG members. We hosted a business meeting, MLA CE class, and an outreach event all on the same day. The day started out with a business meeting at UCSF, followed by an NN/LM Pacific Southwest Region sponsored CE class ‘Librarians Collaborating to Produce Systematic Reviews’. Then in the afternoon, an outreach event was held at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View. Thank you to Raquel Abad and Peggy Tahir for arranging the location and refreshments at UCSF – and a big ‘thank you’ to Xan Goodman who flew all the way from Las Vegas to host the outreach event in Mountain View. Such dedication is what keeps NCNMLG still going strong 67 years later.
At the business meeting, the results of the election were announced. Congratulations to the new Executive Board members and thank you to everyone who ran for office.
The new Executive Board members are:
President: Raquel Abad
Vice-President: Stephen Kiyoi
Secretary: Amy Studer

Representative to the MLA Chapter Council: Mina Davenport
Alternate Representative to the MLA Chapter Council: Michelle Rachal
