Call for nominations

On Feb. 2nd I sent a Call for nominations to the SUNYLA community for three open executive board positions: 1st Vice President/President Elect; 2nd Vice President; and Secretary. The deadline for nominations was March 1st. The slate for 2012/2013 is as follows: 1st Vice President/President Elect – Sarah Morehouse, Empire State College; 2nd Vice President – Mark McBride, Buffalo State; Secretary – Carleen Huxley, SUNY Jefferson.


METRO meeting

On Feb 14 I attended the Regional Professional Leadership Network Meeting, sponsored by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO). METRO is one of the nine regional 3Rs Councils. Ten local library groups attended the meeting: METRO; LACUNY; Archivists Roundtable of NY; SUNYLA; ACRL/NY; Medical Library Assoc. NY/NJ; American Society for Information Science & Technology; NY Technical Services Librarians; New York Library Club; and SLA/NY.

The focus of the meeting was collaboration. Metro introduced the “Community Partners Program.” The purpose of the program is to further existing relationships between METRO and local and regional organizations and to encourage collaboration and sharing of assets toward the mutual benefit of all organizations. The benefits of joining – being listed as a community partner on METROs webpage (with a link to our website); co-hosting events; a free membership for one leader in our organization.

At the meeting I encouraged all groups to sign up for a table at the SUNYLA conference.


Call for host for 2013 conference

On March 1st I put out a call looking for a 2013 host campus for the SUNYLA conference. So far, they has been no interest. At Mark McBride’s suggestion I’m working on a ‘check list’ of host campus requirements. When this is finished, we plan to add it to the SUNYLA website.

Since last meeting I have attended the SUNY Council of Library Directors meeting on Oct. 5 & 6 in Utica. At the meeting I was assigned to the Shared Collections Task Force, and I have been working with the task force through emails and conference calls.

With the help of Ken Fukiuchi, I believe all of the SUNYLA delegates are now receiving emails from the council list. We are still working on getting the delegates listed on the delegate page of the SUNYLA website.

As requested at the last SUNYLA council meeting, I have updated the SUNY-Related Acronyms page, with the help of Katherine Brent.

In December I will be attending the NYSHEI meeting in Albany.

SUNYLA 1st VP Report
Sept. 23, 2011


I’ve been working with delegates – new and old.

•   Making sure their listing is correct on the SUNYLA website & the SUNYLA Council List
•   Guiding them through the delegates page and the tool kit
•   Providing the information on accessing the delegate webpage

I will also be working with other members to see that delegates are quickly and seamlessly added to all of the appropriate SUNYLA lists.

SCLD Meeting

I will be attending the SCLD meeting with April Davies on October 4 & 5 in Utica.
