A message from the SCLA President.

Colleagues,

In order to have more autonomy over our membership, financials, and CEU opportunities SCLA is actively looking to separate from NYLA. SCLA believes in being a resource for all members, and we believe that we will be able to do that more efficiently being our own organization. This will be a long process and the SCLA Board will keep our members informed along the way. Please see the below information regarding membership.

Additionally, please feel free to reach out to me at cmitchell@wbpl.us with any other questions.

I look forward to the new future of SCLA.

Best,

Carisse Mitchell
SCLA President 2022
