NEWS OF THE ASSOCIATION
11 conference attendees have doubtless returned home by now, as highly chal-
lenged, exhilarated, and inspired by the happenings each shared, as I. The out-
standing workshops, the highly qualified instructors, the good fellowship and
camaraderie experienced created a delightful experience. I had a wonderful time! And,
in spite of sitting in on board meetings during Saturday's all-day tour, and again on the
morning of the 4th of July (!), it did not detract from the awesomeness of having at-
tended this conference. Attendance was down, with not quite 200 on hand, but the loss
was to you who could not make it, I'm afraid. I encourage you to come out if at all possi-
ble next year, July 7-9 to Indianapolis for the 24th annual conference.
Invocation offered by Rev. Richard Wereley, Faith Presbyterian Church. Baltimore, at the
Awards Banquet on Sunday evening, July1, 1990.
The SLA (Special Libraries Association) in their June 1990 issue of SpeciaList came up
with a special theme to attract new members "Each One Reach One." In my report at the
member's business meeting at the conference, I reported CSLA's membership had
reached 1,900 - so close to that 2,000 mark that seems to elude us each year by a very
small margin. How about each of us borrowing SLA's theme? Whom do you know who
is a congregational librarian, but not a member of CSLA? Haven't you from time to time
thought of people who would greatly benefit from membership in CSLA? Let's
collectively talk to these people, and explain to them the numerous benefits of member-
ship. You know what they are: free subscription to Church and Synagogue Libraries, 20%
discount on the purchase of any of our how-to guides and/or bibliographies, one-on-one
help through our library services program and other committees, a lower members' reg-
istration fee to attend our conferences, local chapters to offer more one-on-one help. We
enthusiastic, participating members are, after all, the best recruiters! Incidentally, I have
already recruited a new librarian friend in Oregon. Join me!
Diane van Naerssen, Library Services chairperson, has recommended several changes
for a revised checklist. Both additions and merges are represented in these changes.
Added to the list are: Fun and Fund-raising activities; Computer resources; Books for
the very young (this has been updated and reinstated); Religious publishers; and How to
implement the copyright law. Video vendors has merged with AV resources, and Select-
ing materials for your library has merged with Book selection aids. Copies of the revised
brochure will be mailed to all members as soon as available.
Evelyn Ling was honored by her church on April 22, 1990 as librarian for 25 years. A cof-
fee hour after the worship service featured a continuous slide presentation telling the
story of 25 years of dedicated services by Evelyn and her staff. A booklet
commemorating 25 years of service, highlighted the staff, circulation of materials, libra-
ry holding, number of volunteer hours, services to the congregation, memorial gifts, etc.
Congratulations, Evelyn, to you and your staff for a job well done.
