During the 74th Annual Business Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, the CLSA membership elected three new officers to the Board of Governors.

The Very Rev. Phillip J. Brown, S.S., assumes the post of Vice-President/President-Elect for 2012-2013. Father Brown currently serves as Rector for Theological College in Washington, D.C. He is a priest from the Diocese of Bismarck and is the General Treasurer for the Society of Saint Sulpice.

Rev. Patrick Cooney, O.S.B., from Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology and Rev. John J.M. Foster from The Catholic University of America School of Canon Law were elected to the Office of Consultor. Both will serve a term of three years.
