WOW! Can you believe it is already March?! Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun! And while I had a blast at the NALS of Arizona’s Winter Conference held right here in our own backyard, I love the month of MARCH. We have St. Patrick’s Day, I have a bunch of friends and family with March birthdays and to top it off, it’s MARCH MADNESS time too!
And now for a quick educational moment. Our next CLE After Hours and General Membership Meeting is March 17th (St. Patty’s Day), and we are going to have a GREEN OUT! (See the flyer on Page 5.) Originally, the color associated with Saint Patrick was blue, but over the years, the color green and its association with St. Patrick's Day have become synonymous. St. Patrick is said to have used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish, and the wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs have become a ubiquitous feature of St. Patrick’s Day.
And now back to a little business. Did you know that Arizona’s three chapters along with the State Association are entertaining the idea of changing our logos. Yep! Please read further in this issue for the reasoning behind the change and take a look at the proposed changes. The Board will be discussing this at our March Board Meeting and will also hear comments from our membership Please contact any member of the Board to give us your thoughts on the proposed logos.
Hope to see you there or at one of our upcoming events:
March 10-13 NALS Professional Development & Education Conference (Tulsa OK)
March 17 CLE After Hours: Imagining a Greater Tucson
April 8 Awards & Appreciation Banquet
April 29-30 NALS of Arizona Spring Education Conference (Prescott AZ)
