Hey, I’m SLA President!

Well, I am SLA President for 2008. Stephanie Wical took this photo of me in Louisville at the official ceremony (and posted it to Facebook). (Thanks!)
During the speech I gave to teh assembled SLA international Leadership got a half dozen Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn invites from the audience. Yes, during! Cool.
I have a great Board and HQ team. I know this will be a great year. In the photo, I am wearing my first Tux. We’re dressing SLA up and taking it on the road under the theme ‘Innovate in 2008’.
BTW, that’s the SLA Chain of Office. It makes me feel like Lord Mayor of London or something. It is made of sterling silver coins from around the world. I got to wear it for about 2 hours until it returned to the vault. I hope to see it again in Seattle at the annual conference.
(Oh yeah, this is probably the first photo of me with a beard, ever. The shingles are retreating but not gone.)

  1. Congratulations! The tux and the chain are quite spiffy. I didn’t know there was SLA regalia!

    You look great with a beard and dress up very nicely! Now let’s see what you can do.

  3. Congrats. Looks like the shingles also gave you a beard. Looks good. Increases your futurist cred, but decreases your corporate cred. 🙂

  4. Congratulations Stephen! Looking very regal in the picture! 😉

  5. Congratulations! You certainly deserve it!

  6. The beard wears well… as does the “chain” Congrats!
