ALA- Northern Virginia Chapter
The ALA Statewide Retreat was held last weekend, March 21 - 22. Photos of our group at the event in Williamsburg can be found by clicking here. 

It is with profound sadness that we note the death of our friend and colleague, Jaime Rowley, who was an active member of ALA, Northern Virginia Chapter as well as the co-chair of our Education Committee.

Jaime passed away March 12, 2014 as she was hit by a car in Ashburn while jogging. She was the Office Manager at Berenzweig, Leonard, LLP. For those of you who have had the pleasure of meeting her, you must have appreciated her contagious enthusiasm and devotion to our Chapter. She will be sorely missed not only as a colleague, a Board Member but also a very sweet friend to many.

The service for Jaime will held Tue March 18th, 2014 at 10am, at Our Saviors Way, Lutheran Church Ashburn, Virginia 20148.

Reception to follow at 1757 Golf Club 45120 Waxpool Road, Dulles Virginia 20147 @ 12pm.

Donations for her surviving dependents are being gathered at this website:
