Margret Branschofsky, NEASIST Chair
Winner: Beatrice Pulliam (NEASIST)
The 2005 Chapter Member of the Year award goes to Beatrice Pulliam of
the New England Chapter (NEASIST) for the Chapter Member of the Year
award. Beatrice got involved in NEASIST when she was a Simmons student
by volunteering to help out with the DASER conference. She quickly
gained a reputation as a creative and can-do person, and was soon asked
to be Program Chair. As the 2005 Program Chair, she organized a spring
program on new web tools and a fall program on intellectual property.
Both programs were praised by her fellow chapter members for their
innovation. In addition, Beatrice oversaw moving the chapter website to
a new host, established a chapter blog, and volunteered to moderate a
blog for the 2005 Annual Meeting in Charlotte, NC. And all these great
contributions were made while she was transitioning from being a student
to a professional job at Providence College. Judges agreed that
Beatrice is an immense asset to NEASIST. She was noted for both
providing quality services and introducing information technologies that
benefit society members within and outside her chapter.
I would like to congratulate you and your chapters on behalf of the
Chapter Event of the Year jury. Syndicate, Aggregate, Communicate: New
Web Tools in Real Applications for Libraries, Companies and Regular Folk
(NEASIST) & To Google Or Not To Google (Indiana and Michigan) will share
the award this year. The judges found both events were extremely
innovative, financial successes, showed excellent planning, and serve as
excellent models for other chapters.
