SLA Academic Division statement on SLA Annual 2018 and North Carolina

The SLA Academic Division is grateful to SLA Board President Tom Rink for his statement condemning North Carolina's recent passage of HB2, a law that discriminates against LGBT people. We also stand with the New York and Philadelphia Chapters of SLA in calling for immediate negotiations to change the location of the SLA Annual Conference in 2018 from Charlotte, NC.

This law runs counter to the principles of our Association, our Division, and our profession, and as such it would be irresponsible for our Association to hold our annual conference in North Carolina while said law stands. SLA's Board has shown itself capable of taking decisive action in the past year, no matter the difficulty, and this should be no exception.

Jim DelRosso
Chair, SLA Academic Division

The Stacey Greenwell Outstanding Division Member Award is now accepting nominations for 2015.  Nominating someone (including yourself!) for this award is a great way to celebrate their contributions to the Academic Division.
