Two longtime Solo Division members will be recognized by SLA this June at our Annual Conference in San Diego.
Dan Trefethen will receive the John Cotton Dana Award, SLA’s highest honor. Dan is an Analyst at the Boeing Company, and has served extensively within SLA, including SLA’s Board of Directors and as SLA’s Treasurer. Dan was Chair of the Solo Division from 1993 to 1994. We all know that it’s tough to climb the ladder as a solo, so we’re very proud to acknowledge your accomplishments and this much deserved award.
Jill Strand will receive the ProQuest/Dialog Member Achievement Award. Jill is Library Director at Maslon Edleman Borman Brand. She has served many positions in the Minnesota Chapter and has been a Solo Division member for over ten years. Jill is Chair of the Annual Conference Advisory Council for this year’s conference and you can see her tooling around one of the beautiful Minneapolis lakes on a motorcycle in the promotional video for the conference.
Congratulations to you both!
