The LSA Has a New Treasurer!
After several great years as the Treasurer of the LSA, Thomas Walker Jr. is stepping down and handing the reins over to Susan Meredith. Susan has a strong background in accounting and bookkeeping and the professionalism she brings to the duties will serve us well. Tom will be available to her, and anyone, for reference, until Susan is comfortable that the transition is complete. Tom continues, "It has been quite lovely serving with all of you; I believe that in the last few years all of us (and I had not much to do with this) oversee a stronger LSA with deeper offerings than when our tenures began."
