The following is posted on behalf of our departing committee member Katrina Clifford. CIG would like to thank Katrina for all her hard work on the commiitee over the past five years.
Earlier this year I took the very difficult decision to step down from the CIG committee at the end of the year, after 5 very good years (2 as secretary). At the time December seemed a very long way away, but it soon crept up on me and Wednesday 4th December was my final meeting.
I’ve still got the minutes to write up and to arrange a proper ‘handover’ to the new secretary (details of that will be in a future post) who I know will do a brilliant job. I’ve also one final thing to do in January (again, more details soon) but it seems the perfect time to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has supported me in any way during my time in CIG.
The biggest ‘Thank you’ to the committee. You’re are an amazing group of people and we’ve shared a good few laughs alongside with all the planning! I know you’ll continue to go from strength to strength.
I’ve been very grateful too to my employers, Kingston University for all the time and support they’ve given me to attend meetings, plan events etc…
Also my heartfelt thanks to my husband for all his support, both technical and emotional!
My final ‘thank you’ is to all of you in the wide cataloguing and indexing world – CIG does what it does to benefit the members and it’s the great feedback we get that makes all the hard work worthwhile.
I have been very blessed to have had this experience and learnt so much both professionally and personally. I know I’ll enjoy coming to a future CIG event, this time with the chance to sit and enjoy it with a few less bits of paper and to-do lists to worry about!
