1st Vice President Report
« on: September 22, 2014, 11:22:50 AM »
My first order of business as 1st VP has been to go through the directory listings and make sure that
a) Everyone listed as a delegate is still at the campus listed
b) We have delegates or representatives at every campus/SUNY unit

In some cases there was an active delegate at a campus, but when they registered/renewed their membership they may not have checked the box to indicate that they were the delegate. I reached out to those people and got them all added to the listing on the website. I also noticed some email address typos and had those corrected to make sure that emails we send out using the list actually make it to the intended recipients.

I spoke to both Wendy West and Rosanne Humes because I wasn't sure if Cornell should have delegates, how many, and who should represent them. According to our listing of campuses there are 4 different Cornell units, but their libraries aren't divided along the same lines as the SUNY-affiliated units. Right now it'd be nice to just have at least one delegate representing them if we can figure out who to contact.

There was uncertainty as to whether or not Stony Brook and Stony Brook HSL should be considered as two separate entities, each with their own delegate, or if they should share a delegate. We've been receiving campus updates specifically from a librarian at the HSL, but the listed delegate is in the main campus library.

There are also some other voids in my listing, where there are no members (active or inactive) listed at a given campus (or the only members listed are no longer in their campus' directory). In those instances I've been trying to find *someone* to email and encourage them to speak to their colleagues and get back to me.

Lastly, I'm still waiting on delegate election results from at least one campus and will send out another round of emails in the next week or so to those that I emailed but didn't hear back from.

This was a long one, but I think we're off to a good start this year!

I've been informed by Jennifer DeVito at Stony Brook that the main campus and HSL operations are now fully merged. There should no longer be a separate delegate for HSL and I will update my records to reflect that.
