Here is the revised Academic Freedom Statement for librarians.

WGIL has been quiet since the last meeting. We did start two groups to prepare for Alma. The marketing group is being chaired by Amanda Lowe. The instruction resources group is being shared by Cyndi Tysick.

After some conversation, Carleen and I would like to say thank you for the opportunity to lead WGIL for the past few years and ask that a new chair/co-chairs are appointed going forward.

June 12, 2019 Council Meeting @ Onondaga (Annual) / President's Report

This year’s conference looks very exciting – there’s lots of great programs, social events, and networking opportunities – take advantage of as much as you can. Many thanks to all who helped to make this another SUNYLA success.

I sent out information to all of the New York State LIS programs (7) on the two-year, no-cost membership available to students. At least 4 have posted the message on their student listservs.  There is an increase in enrollment but not overwhelming. I recommend that we initiate some efforts to engage these new members and would like to take this on as my past president project.

Erin Sharwell has agreed to serve as the chair of the Professional Development Committee. This is a big undertaking and we will be meeting during the conference to discuss the committee responsibilities and oversight. 

What a wonderful year – it has been a pleasure and honor to work with all of you – SUNYLA strong is its members – your work makes SUNYLA strong! Bill, Carrie and I have been working on a thank you for your efforts.

Hello, SUNYLA!

Congratulations to April Broughton (1st VP – Finger Lakes Community College), Jocelyn Ireland (2nd VP – Mohawk Valley Community College), and Greg Bobish (Treasurer – University at Albany).  New officer terms begin following the conference on Friday June 14th.

- I will be hosting a New Member/1st-time Attendee gathering at 5:30pm (just before the Membership Social) on Wednesday, June 12th in the Coulter Gallery.  If this is your first SUNYLA Conference, you should come (psst… you get a goodie bag)!

- Thank you for the opportunity to serve as the 1st Vice President for a second time this last year, and I look forward to serving as your SUNYLA President in the year ahead!

Hi everyone! We have $17358.70 in the bank, and $22,804.21 in paypal, and we're about to be get back $12,599.39 from the last conference, so we'll have a total of $52,762.30. I've attached the spreadsheet for the bank account, please let me know if you have questions. Paypal is mostly memberships with a few vendor payments that snuck in before the conference system got set up, but if anyone wants more details I can fill you in.

Thanks, and see you tomorrow!
