SUNYLA Publications Committee Report
March 25, 2022


Activities:
•   Febuary newsletter came together without a hitch and went out on time
•   Social media member spotlights:  Do you know a SUNYLA member that should be spotlighted? Are you that member? We want to highlight you! Send an email to Amanda Lowe (amlowe@albany.edu) for details.

Upcoming:
•   We lost a member when they left their job at MVCC. I'm not going to worry about filling the spot until summer.
•   The next newsletter issue will be May, call for submissions will go out mid-late April
--> May is the last issue before the conference so this will be the last chance to advertise anything conference-related. I’d really like to include something about the keynote, events, and/or other conference info.

November 13, 2020 Council Meeting @ VIRTUAL / changes to bylaws & manual
« on: November 09, 2020, 12:37:17 PM »
Review of Bylaws and Manual of Duties & Responsibilities

I’ve been working with Carol Anne Germain and Bill Jones on revisions to the SUNYLA Bylaws, as well as the Manual of Duties & Responsibilities. We were looking to make sure they are in keeping with current practice, reflect changes previously approved, and do not contain gender-specific language. Once approved by the Council, the changes to the Bylaws will need to go on the spring ballot for approval by the membership. Changes to the Manual only require approval of the Council.

Please spend some quality time with the google docs linked below before Friday’s meeting. You can go ahead and send me any comments and suggestions if you want, or just save them for the meeting.

bylaws:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OSr7sgd9KUrTz6H1DOJK3E3bd7L0FbLp9rZuzB7vrsw/edit?usp=sharing

We've been doing limited 'curbside' pickups for physical items. Some of our regular users are SO glad to get hold of new reading material.

April Davies (me) is co-presenting a preconference session on Tenure and Promotion for the SUNYLA conference.

Katherine Brent continues to put in many hours of work as co-chair of the college's Middle States committee.

The library will be closed all summer which hasn't happened since we were shut down for renovation several years ago. We're all still working of course, mostly from home for now.
