I got back from the SLA conference last June to the whole lab in a crisis. It passed and in e-mail, I got a notice that my SLA renewal was over due. Which is funny because I routed all the paperwork at the same time as my conference registration paperwork (we have an office that processes all of our society memberships). So then I dug, and dug, and dug, and dug… and didn’t find that I still had a print/signed copy of my registration renewal form. I found it saved on my hard drive and printed it out and put it on the pile… closed the library down… moved offices… thought about it…
So, heh, embarrassingly, I can’t renew now and vote in the name election. I could renew now anyway, but I think I’ll wait and see what the outcome is. If the new name passes, I’m not going to renew. If it fails to pass, I’ll renew.
I just hate paperwork!
If you can vote, and haven’t yet, you might want to read David Shumaker’s comments. I think they’re right on. I’m EXTREMELY tired of this conversation and will be so happy when it’s over. That is, if the new name doesn’t pass.
If it does, well, I’ll have to see which divisions will let me stay on their listservs anyway.
