On behalf of the Executive Board of the American Association of Law Libraries and all of our members, I am pleased to send congratulations to the Chicago Association of Law Libraries (CALL) as you celebrate your 70th anniversary as an AALL Chapter this year.
Since becoming a chapter in June 1947, CALL has played an important role for its members and for the legal community. CALL has provided educational and networking opportunities for law librarians and has fostered a spirit of professional cooperation and service. From the beginning and throughout its history, CALL has had strong ties to AALL. The many contributions of CALL members to AALL as volunteers and leaders on the national level have been a tremendous benefit to the law library profession. Thank you for your strong history of service and leadership; it is highly valued and greatly appreciated.
To the members of CALL, I offer best wishes for many more years of success. AALL values its relationship with our chapters and looks forward to future collaborations that will benefit all of us.
Ronald E. Wheeler, Jr.
