The 142nd Annual Meeting of the ALA was conducted virtually again this year as we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic that has prevented large in-person gatherings. The President’s Reception was virtual as well. Over fifty members participated. Many were in attendance, including Charles Cummings (Guest of Honor), Charles Ford (deRoaldes Award Recipient), James Netterville (James E. Newcomb Award Recipient), and Nobuhiko Isshiki (ALA Medal Recipient). Incoming ALA President Clark Rosen managed to get the participants engaged with themed breakout sessions as well. We now look forward to the 143rd Annual Meeting and gathering together in-person again.
