The Slovak American Society of Washington (SASW) is pleased to announce the appointment of Virginia Sorkin to its board of directors.  Ms. Sorkin, the holder of two masters degrees, will fill the seat of Ludo Hintos who resigned recently. Virginia Sorkin most recently worked in information technology at the Library of Congress. She also managed the National Digital Library Visitors Center.

Ms. Sorkin said she was pleased to join the board and will focus her efforts on membership and scholarship fundraising.  She is a member of the American Association of University Women, the Brandeis National Committee and The Transition Network.  She hopes to develop some joint activities with these groups.

The SASW Board urges its members and other interested parties to consider running for the board at its October membership meeting to be held at the Slovak Embassy.  Three seats of the nine member board will be up for election, including the seat held by Ms. Sorkin.  One or two other seats may be open.

Interested parties should make their interest known to the SASW Board (info@dcslovaks.org).  The board meets monthly and would be pleased to host interested parties at one of its board meeting.
