It was a terrific conference and I also want to say thank you to MLA and to each person in attendance who shared their stories, expertise, and experience. We are very fortunate in Maine to have such resources so readily at hand. Jamie, yours, and Janet's delivery of bad news in the Van Delivery session was (chef's kiss!) and reminded me how much the entire crew at MSL works to support all libraries, throughout state. It is much appreciated, and maybe I'm a little wistful about Janet's departure but her leadership and guidance these past years has been remarkable.
So, thank you all, very much.

I want to thank Wynter as President, Jen as past-President, and Sonya as incoming President --- and of course all those on the Maine Library Association (MLA) Board and Conference Committee who made this year's Annual 2022 Conference (the theme 'Trusted') possible. There was wonderful attendance, great programs, and many, many, thoughtful conversations that took place as a result.
Also, the Maine InfoNet pre-conference was terrific and well attended! Lots of great conversations taking place there too.
It was good to be back - it's a nice feeling! I thank you all for that.
