2012 MLD Distinguished Service Award Winners Announced

I would like to announce our 2012 MLD Distinguished Service Award winners: Gail Nicula and Connie Wiley. This Award annually recognizes MLD members for outstanding and sustained service to the Military Libraries Division.

Dr Janet Gail Nicula, National Defense University, US Joint Forces Staff College Library In 2003, Gail worked on the Military Libraries Workshop 2003 as the Program Planner. She and her staff contributed greatly to the success of the National Defense University hosting of that MLW. Some innovative ideas included a marketing model for static display on the History of Military Libraries that was built at the site. Gail served as the Membership Chair for the Division in 2004-2010 and recruited additional members to support this very important activity. MLW 2011 in Norfolk, VA, was a team effort led by a vibrant and enthusiastic leader. The success for all the planning brought many attendees and sponsors to the meeting. Innovations at MLW 2011 included Meet and Greet First Timers, a sit down Networking Breakfast and numerous free time tours and events. Of particular interest for the MLD Distinguished Services Award is the manner in which Gail was able to involve the staff at the Joint Staff College as well as Librarians representing all services in the Norfolk area. For the collaboration among the Tidewater librarians, the successful inclusion of Joint Forces Library Staff and the leadership show throughout the two year process, Gail Nicula is well deserving of the Division’s Distinguished Service Award.

Connie J. Wiley, Humphreys Engineer Center Support Activity Library, U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Connie Wiley has been an active member of MLD for over 10 years. During that time, she has served as the DoD Director (2001-2002), the Membership Chair (2001-2002) and the Director at Large (2011-2012). In 2004, MLW was to be held in Columbia, SC and hosted by the Chaplains School with the assistance of the Defense Polygraph Institute and the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). Due to unforeseen circumstances, DTIC’s role in the planning of this event became much larger, and Connie assumed a leadership role. She was involved with hotel arrangements, menu planning, program planning, logistics, and more. She did all of this with good humor, grace, and calm. The success of MLW 2004 was due in no small part to Connie’s efforts. The Division continued to benefit from Connie’s planning expertise over the last 2 years when she served as Director at Large, planning the Division's programs for the 2012 SLA Annual Conference in Chicago, IL. She arranged for the Division’s program sessions, business meeting and luncheon, as well as social activities. For her continued service in a leadership capacity over an extended period of time, Connie Wiley is well deserving of the Division’s Distinguished Service Award.

Thank you both for many years work!

"Balance for Oil, Imbalance for LNG?" (recorded webcast) Center for Strategic & International Studies

https://www.csis.org/events/balance-oil-imbalance-lng

"The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Fereidun Fesharaki, Founder and Chairman of FGE, for a presentation and discussion on the current state of global oil and gas markets, one balancing as the other appears to tip toward imbalance.

Oil markets are struggling to reach a balance, and with robust demand growth and continued OPEC cutbacks, a balance might be reached in the 2017/2018 period. LNG markets are facing a prolonged period of imbalance, perhaps through about 2023, before a balance can be reached. While many advocate new U.S. LNG projects, around 50% of the projects currently under construction have still not been sold to end users.

Dr. Fesharaki's work is recognized worldwide for pioneering oil and gas market analysis since the early 1980s. Born in Iran, he received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Surrey in England. He then completed a visiting fellowship at Harvard University’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He joined the East West Center in 1979, where he led the Energy program for two decades. FGE offices are spread around the world in 8 locations with heavy emphasis on Asia and the Middle East.
