Title: LACUNY Update
Post by: Rebecca Hyams on June 16, 2021, 11:40:46 AM
Hi everyone. I've been pretty swamped so I don't know if I'll make it today, but I hope everyone's having a good conference so far.

We have a few updates from LACUNY:

The 2021 LACUNY Institute was held on May 5th and 6th virtually and was well attended.

Elections were held to elect new officers for the Executive Council. The 2021-22 Executive Council is:
Jeffrey Delgado (President)
Nelson Santana (VP/President-Elect)
Nandi Prince (Secretary)
Matthew Dineiro (Treasurer)
Derek Stadler and Leila Walker (Urban Library Journal Editors)

It was decided by the LACUNY Executive Council that we would no longer solicit donations for our Mutual Aid fund. The fund has a healthy balance and the number of requests for monetary assistance had slowed to the point where we anticipate being able to fulfill any requests that come in for the time being. LACUNY will revisit the fund and determine what to do with the remaining funds that can support the Mutual Aid mission.
