SUNYLA Publications Committee Report

SUNYLA Publications Committee
Ellen McCabe, Chair

March 15, 2012

 Members of the Publications Committee: Lori Annesi (Monroe), Jim Coan (Oneonta), Linda Gorman (Nassau), Jennifer Little (Brockport), Ellen McCabe (Cortland) (chair), Jennifer Smathers (Brockport).

HELP WANTED!! The SUNYLA Publications Committee is looking for a few good women and/or men to bolster its ranks. With the loss of two members this year, the committee is feeling the pinch. Having more editors will make the task easier and build in some needed back-ups. The newsletter is currently created in a MS Publisher format, and then sent out in PDF form for the editors.  Ideally, we could use someone who could intake all the submissions and consolidate them (even into a word document would be a great help!)  That would allow the current editor, Jennifer Smathers, to concentrate on layout and editing and should reduce the amount of time it takes to get to a finished newsletter. Proofreaders are always needed as well; each committee member usually proof-reads certain sections of the newsletter before it goes out. Consider the Publications Committee as a way to get involved with SUNYLA!
 The Publications Committee account stands at $677. Since we are in a trial period for the online only version, it should remain at or near that sum for the foreseeable future.
I am planning on stepping down as the Publications Committee Chair following the 2012 SUNYLA Conference. We do not as yet have a volunteer to take over; as I will be remaining on the committee as a proofreader, I will try to work on the transition over the summer.
The May Newsletter has come out online at the SUNYLA website at
Please continue to submit items for the next Newsletter. Submissions to the newsletter are being accepted via the SUNYLA Forums at  website and via E-mail. The next issue due date is September 15, 2012. Please send items to Jennifer Smathers

Respectfully submitted,

Ellen McCabe (Chair)
