This past meeting I had the privilege of serving on the local arrangements committee as the registration co-chair along with Joe Mitzenmacher. I was excited to help show off the Windy City to out-of-town AALL members from around the country, but I also had no idea about the level of detail that went into planning the annual meeting and I was a little bit nervous because event planning is not my forte. But, with Maribel Nash and Megan Butman leading the helm, we were in excellent hands and I had nothing to be nervous about. This report is intended to give you an idea of the work that goes into participating on a local arrangements committee. And it will hopefully encourage you to get involved in planning an association or chapter event, big or small—especially the upcoming 2017 MAALL meeting in Milwaukee (hint, hint).

In early April, I had the privilege of attending the American Association of Law Libraries’ Leadership Academy. The most profound and interesting takeaway from the conference was the idea that we can all be leaders, even if we are not the boss.
