1st VP Report
« on: June 07, 2023, 03:00:20 PM »
The results of this year’s election are:
1st Vice-President: Jill Locascio (SUNY College of Optometry)
2nd Vice-President: Charles Lyons (Buffalo State)
Treasurer: Leah Fitzgerald (SUNY Canton)

The 2022-2023 terms will begin at the end of the SUNYLA Annual Conference at SUNY Maritime (Friday).

The (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Accessibility Committee) IDEA Committee Creation Vote passed!
Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote in this year’s elections.

Jennifer DeVito and Adam Saunders hosted a second Delegates meeting on April 28th. Highlights of the meeting included the following:

-Review of the SUNYLA Delegate website and Delegate Toolkit. Thank you Delegates for all the feedback you provided!
-Discussion of Delegate representation at the conference. Jill came through and ordered us Delegate ribbons for name tags that same day. Thank you Jill!
-In-person delegate get together at the SUNYLA Conference. There was a lot of interest in doing a group dine out. Jill recommended Paddy’s on the Bay, a local pub/restaurant. An email went out to delegates confirming that we will have a dine out at Paddy’s on Wednesday, June 14th at 7:30PM.
-There was further discussion on use of the forums. Delegates provided a number of suggestions of alternative platforms that could be adopted to improve communication and collaboration: Slack, Discord, Groups.IO, etc

Looking ahead for next year we will plan on having another delegate meeting in August before the fall semester begins. Delegates were interested in some themed meetings during the year. One example being on putting together information for the newsletter. There was also some curiosity in having future newsletters based around a central theme. We will follow up with April Davies.

We will be holding a new member/1st SUNYLA conference meeting today (Wed. the 14th) at 5:30. If this is your first conference, you are a new member, a library school student, or you just want to stop in and say hello, please join me and your fellow new SUNYLA members.

Finally I am humbly looking forward to serving as your president for the next year.
