Hulett "Bucky" Askew is ALL-SIS's VIP Guest
I am pleased to announce that Mr. Hulett "Bucky" Askew has accepted the ALL-SIS Board's invitation to join with our membership at the AALL Annual Meeting in St. Louis as our SIS's VIP guest.
Mr. Askew will be assuming the position of the ABA Consultant on Legal Education in September. This body is charged with accrediting law schools, establishing standards and ensuring compliance with the standards. Mr. Askew has had a very rich legal career and since 1990, has been serving as Director of Bar Admissions for the Supreme Court of Georgia. He holds his law degree from Emory University and has a B.A. Degree from the University of North Carolina.
While in attendance at the Annual Meeting, Mr. Askew will meet with a variety of librarians and Association leaders. A highlight for ALL-SIS will be his attendance at our Breakfast and Business meeting on Sunday, July 9th at 7:00 am, where he has agreed to make some remarks to our membership.
It is a great privilege for us to have as our VIP an outstanding person like Mr. Askew, who has been a Bar Leader, and will now assume one of the most important jobs in Legal Education. I know I can count on all of our members to introduce themselves to Mr. Askew when you see him and to make him welcome.
I hope to see many of you at our Centennial Meeting in St. Louis, July 8–12, 2006.
