I. Professional Development Grants Subcommittee (Lisa Errico, Chair)

Michelle Costello, SUNY Geneseo
Amount:  $500.00

II. Conference Awards (Kim Myers, Chair)
The Professional Development Conference Awards Subcommittee met on 2/1/16 to discuss the following recommendations that we would like to put forth for Council action:

Regarding Sylvia Chu eligibility – Presenters in the past were ineligible to apply for this scholarship, since their registration fee was waived. This has been changed to a 25% waiver. We recommend removing the criteria that “An applicant is not a session presenter.”

Regarding Daniel Kissane eligibility (now only open to current MLS students) - open up eligibility for recent graduates who are not yet employed, as well.

Regarding the selection of scholarship recipients – The subcommittee recommends to the Council that the function of this committee is to evaluate applications and select recipients. We would also like to know in advance (depending on how much $ is in the fund) how many scholarships the Council would like to award each year, and the committee will work with that number to determine recipients. 

III. Friend of SUNYLA Award (Greg Bobbish)
A call for nominations will be sent out shortly.

IV. Funding Requests
Funding will need to be approved for the Friend of SUNYLA Award (usually about $550).
Funding will also need to be approved for number of Sylvia Chu and Dan Kissane recipients this year.

V. Professional Development Chair-End of Term
My term as Chair of the Professional Development Committee expires in June.

Professional Development Committee Report
11/13/15


The Professional Development Committee met virtually on 10/19/15.   I updated the membership roster for the Professional Development Committee.  I invited any SUNYLA members who recently (in 2015) indicated that they were interested in joining the committee.  Currently, there are fourteen members.

During the meeting, I informed members that I am looking for a co-chair to assist with the PDC. To date, no one has contacted me to express interest in serving as Co-Chair.

Ideas were discussed regarding a brown bag series.  They include: support research for tenure, information literacy strategies and supporting new librarians.

The Conference Awards Subcommittee may consider inviting Sylvia Chu award winners to serve on the Conference Awards Subcommittee the year following their receipt of the award. 

The mentoring program is status quo. There is one pairing for this academic year and there doesn’t seem to be interest among current PDC members in making the mentoring program a subcommittee of the Professional Development Committee. I may send out an announcement to seek mentors/mentees for Spring 2016, the second half of the academic year.

I.   Justina Elmore resigned in August from her position as Co-Chair of the PD Committee. She has left SUNY Geneseo for a position at a non-SUNY institution. We wish her the best of luck!


II.   The PD Grants Subcommittee approved one grant application. A Professional Development Grant was awarded to:

Michael V. Daley (Fulton-Montgomery Community College)
Awarded $500 to attend the Annual Open Education Conference , 11/18/15-11/20/15,  Vancouver, BC



III.   I would like to hold a virtual meeting virtually. However, doing so may be challenging.  I’m seeking input from the Council regarding software to host meetings/webinars/brown bag series, etc. This topic was explored briefly at the March 13, 2015 meeting.

                                                                                           6/3/15

The PDC participated in the following activities:

I. A. Professional Development Grants Subcommittee (Lisa Errico, Chair)

There have been no new applications since the March SUNYLA Council meeting. During this fiscal year, the PDG Subcommittee reviewed eight applications and awarded five grants. The PDG Subcommittee anticipated greater interest and requested additional funding in the amount of $2,500 in February.  This request increased the balance to $3,000 that is available to subsidize grant requests. Reports from grant recipients have been submitted and forwarded to Jennifer Kegler, Chair of the Newsletter Committee.

B. Conference Awards (Kim Myers, Chair)

i. Dan Kissane and Sylvia Chu Memorial Scholarships (Kim Myers)

The requirement that excluded session presenters from qualifying for the Sylvia Chu Memorial Scholarship was waived this year.  The Conference Awards Subcommittee will re-evaluate criteria for both the Sylvia Chu and Dan Kissane Scholarships. These new guidelines will be implemented next year.
The Conference Awards Subcommittee selected twelve Sylvia Chu and one Dan Kissane Scholarship awardees this year.

ii. Friend of SUNYLA (Greg Bobbish)

A nominee was selected.

II.   Mentoring Program

Justina posted a message on the SUNYLA listserv in April seeking a volunteer (s) for a mentor with expertise in obtaining tenure/promotion, taking on leadership roles, circulation & access services, and library instruction to mentor new librarians.

                                                                                         6/3/15
                                                                                             
                                                                 
I represented SUNYLA at two programs that were organized by ALLN (Archives and Library Leadership Network. The Student Mixer took place at Queens College on March 17, 2015. I also attended “From the Classroom to the Community: Social Justice in Library and Information Science.” This program was held at St John’s University on Saturday, May 18, 2015.  It was a full-day conference that featured Marybeth Zeman, author of Tales of a Jailhouse Librarian: Challenging the Juvenile Justice System One Book at a Time and the keynote address entitled “Dark Matter” by Michael Edson, Web and New Media Strategist, Smithsonian Institution. Library students from the Division of Library and Information Science also discussed their research throughout the program. During both events, I participated in the “Meet the Professional Organizations of New York” segments. I highlighted the benefits of SUNYLA student membership and scholarships and I networked with library students.

SUNYLA President Rosanne Humes and new METRO 3Rs Liaison Jill Locascio attended the “Welcome to the Open House” that was held on May 20, 2015 at METRO in Manhattan. It was sponsored by ALLN (Archives and Library Leadership Network of New York City) and METRO.  The purpose of this event was to welcome new librarians to the profession and provide them an opportunity to network with library organizations.  Each participating library organization was asked to have a representative attend the event and submit a raffle item.  On behalf of SUNYLA, Rosanne donated a certificate for a free one-year student membership and an Amazon Gift Card.

                                                                     Professional Development Committee Report
                                                                                        3/13/15

The PDC met virtually on Friday, March 6, 2015. The following topics were covered:

I.    Future Activities and Programs

The committee brainstormed ideas for future programming and activities. Possible topics include a brownbag series that may consist of panels and/or practical training.  These programs may be in person (regional locations) or virtual (webinars).  The Co-Chairs will need assistance from the Council to discuss logistics and feasibility of such events as they relate to:

1. Software to handle sign-up and virtual workshops (Does SUNYLA have software in-place?-CLRC is willing to help with this)

2. The issue of archiving documents and/or a link to a Google Doc that the PD Committee can update often. Access to this document would be beneficial to current and future SUNYLA and PD Committee members.
 
II.   A. Professional Development Grants Subcommittee (Lisa Errico, Chair)

The subcommittee has recently awarded four grants to the following recipients:

Justina Elmore    SUNY Geneseo    (Attend ACRL Conference in Portland, OR)
Emily Mitchell    SUNY Oswego   (Attend LOEX Conference in Denver, CO)
Brandon West   SUNY Oswego   (Attend LOEX Conference in Denver, CO)
Lydia Willoughby   SUNY Plattsburgh   (Attend CritLib Unconference and ACRL in Portland, OR)

As of March 6, 2015, a total of $2,500 has been awarded (five applications) to fund grant requests. Due to the fact that there was a balance of only $500 remaining to fund one more grant application request, the PDC Co-Chairs submitted a request to the SUNYLA Council for the sum  of $2,500 to fund future grant activities until the end of  SUNYLA’ fiscal year.   The request was approved via email vote on 2/10/15.     

B. Conference Awards

i. Dan Kissane and Sylvia Chu Memorial Scholarships (Kim Myers)
 Announcements to apply for the Dan Kissane and Sylvia Chu Memorial Scholarships will be posted on the SUNYLA listserv in the next few weeks.

ii. Friends of SUNYLA (Greg Bobbish)
The time is also approaching to send out a call for nominations for the Friends of SUNYLA Award.

III.   Mentoring Program

The mentoring program has been in place for almost one year.  A small subcommittee was formed to identify possible assessment strategies and goals moving forward.

The Professional Development Committee participated in the following activities:

I. Professional Development Grants Subcommittee

The PDG Subcommittee has been busy reviewing applications. They received three applications     in the last several months.  One was disqualified due to the fact that the applicant was not a SUNYLA member.  Currently two applications are being reviewed. A decision on both applications will be made shortly. There is still $2,500 remaining in the budget for professional development activities.
 
II. Mentoring Program   

The subcommittee is in the process of developing an assessment strategy for the mentoring program.  We are planning to hold a meeting sometime in February.

Rosanne and I attended three ALLN (Archives and Library Leadership Network of New York City) events:

1. The ALLN Fall Meeting was held on 9/30/2014
Two speakers were featured at the meeting. Bill Noorlander of BST America  and SLA NY President Nick Collison:
Mr. Noorlander discussed successful vendor relationships.  He stated that organizations must think like a vendor in order to understand how to offer them an attractive sponsorship opportunity. He stressed the importance of partnering with vendors on a variety of sponsorship venues (e.g. websites, social events, programs), establishing the correct vendor contact, crafting the right story to vendors, and  a well thought-out sponsorship proposal.

Mr. Collison asked the group to consider greater collaboration through joint event hosting. He highlighted several advantages which included: strengthening our collective voice, greater clout with vendors, potential easing up financial burdens and partnering with another organization with more resources or experience. 

2. PRATT SILSSA Student Mixer on 10/6/14
METRO and the Pratt SILS Student Association (SILSSA) co-hosted an open house that was held at Pratt Manhattan on Monday, October 6, 2014. The event brought together students and representatives from local library and archives organizations.  Approximately thirty students attended. Rosanne and I networked with students. We distributed SUNYLA membership flyers, encouraged students to join and offered an assortment of career advice.

3. The ALLN Fall Event on 11/10/14
The event “Exploring New Territory for Collective Impact” was held on November 10, 2014 at the Metropolitan Library Council of New York (METRO). Jeremy Johannesen, Executive Director of NYLA, gave a keynote address on library advocacy.  In his address, he highlighted the differences between advocacy and lobbying. He stated that organizations should remember the acronym M.O.P. (Message, Opportunity and Persistence) when advocating for libraries.  Additional topics covered included: advocacy tools on the NYLA website, getting “key players” into the library (e.g. President, Board of Trustees members, etc.), NYLA’s 2015 legislative agenda and Library Advocacy Day on 2/25/15.

SUNYLA’s own Carol Ann Germain (University of Albany) and Marcy Winkler (SLA) gave an excellent presentation on their experiences with collaboration and the ins-and-outs of organizing a big event. Finally, Kerri Willette, Empire State Digital Network Manager at METRO, gave an overview and update of the Empire State Digital Network service hub of the Digital Public Library of America of America (DPLA). This project has only been in existence for one year and it pulls together digital collections on cultural heritage.
