President report
« on: March 24, 2022, 08:48:17 PM »
Congratulations to our Midwinter Conference Committee, Jill Locascio (chair), Jennifer DeVito, Bill Jones, Carrie Marten, and Jessica McGivney, on another successful event. The recordings are available at https://sunyla.org/sunyla-midwinter-2022/.

Since our last Council Meeting, the SUNYLA website has undergone a redesign. Bill Jones, our Webmaster, was instrumental to this project. Bill and I welcome any feedback you have on how to make the website more user friendly and accessible. Thank you also to Amanda Lowe for creating the picture banner.

Andrea Kingston got a new job outside of SUNY and stepped down as Chair of the Scholarship Subcommittee. Morgan Bond (Oswego) has agreed to be the new Scholarship Chair. Applications for the Sylvia Chu and Daniel Kissane Memorial Scholarships are due today (March 25).

Kim Nolan has stepped down as Chair of the Professional Development Committee. Fabio Montella (Suffolk CC) has recently agreed to be the new Chair. I will be emailing current members that have expressed interest in the Professional Development Committee on their membership/renewal form and invite them to a meeting. We will be discussing goals and future endeavors of the Professional Development Committee. I will share ideas Fabio and I have discussed so far during the Professional Development segment.

There have been discussions of creating a new committee for awards and scholarships to be written into the bylaws. Currently, subgroups of the Professional Development Committee handle awards and scholarships. If we want to pull out awards from this committee, we need to put the proposal on the April ballot to update the bylaws. I would like to discuss this further.
