First of all, I want to say how very thankful we are for Matt Timko and all he has done with the Bulletin since 2018 in his role as editor. Moving forward, Emily Barney will continue on as a “corporate memory” editor to provide tech training and access to the new team and Stacia Stein has stepped up to a new role as co-editor of the Bulletin.
For this issue, we hope you’ll take the time to review the work so many CALL members on committees and in the Executive Board were busy with in the 2022-2023 fiscal year. Here are a few of the highlights:
This summer, of course, included the AALL 2023 Annual meeting. In Mandy Lee’s inaugural President’s letter, she highlights how CALL stood out at the AALL 2023 meeting. Eugene Guidice shares his own take on the conference in his grantee report titled “It Was All About AI…..Or Was it?”
CALL Webinars & Business Meeting
If you missed any of the 4 events hosted by Continuing Education 2022-2023, be sure to check their Annual Report where they’ve shared links to the Zoom recordings and some slides from events focused on recent IL legislation, ABA policies, and specialized legal research strategies.
Thanks to Clare Willis for her recap of the September CALL Business Meeting with Steven Schwinn and his discussion of SCOTUS trends with the administrative state and the implications of recent cases for the separation of powers.
CALL Award Profiles
While the 2023 Honorees were announced back at the May 2023 Business Meeting and shared in the Bulletin, we’re glad to include more details about each person in this issue:
More CALL Work
Of course this is just the tip of the broad ranging work done within CALL in the last year, as you can find in the 16 more articles in the Table of Contents for Issue #268, with more details from the CALL Executive Board and our standing committees.
As we reflect on all the work done in the last year and what’s to come, we’re looking forward to working with Caitlin Archer-Helke, Shannon Conder, and Rachel Ford on the Bulletin committee.
Seeing so much great work done across all the CALL Committees makes us eager to bring in more examples throughout the year to highlight opportunities for members to connect and learn throughout our organization. With this current team, we are looking for ways to make the Bulletin editing more collaborative.
As I mentioned at the end of our last virtual CALL Business Meeting, we’d also like to help CALL members find what they’re interested here: if you have topics you’d like to learn more about from fellow CALL members, feel free to reach out to Stacia and me with “writing prompts” we can use to find and share the expertise available within our membership.
