SUNYLA President’s Report
September 20, 2013

There hasn’t been much ‘presidential’ activity since our June meeting.
  •  In July, there was an email vote on a funding request from the PDC and it was approved.

  •  I went to a meeting of the SCLD Executive Board on Sept. 11 in Albany. We discussed progress on implementing a library content fee, a report from the OpenSUNY task force and planning for the upcoming SCLD Fall Meeting, among other things.
      o  The OpenSUNY discussion led to a particularly good idea. SCLD will sponsor a one-day conference to further develop the recommendations of the task force. You take a couple of librarians from each campus, get the ideas bouncing around and, before you know it, actual progress is made.
      o  Also of note, they are all on board with merging the two SUNYConnect committees (SCC & SFC) back into one. This will be up for approval at their Fall Meeting. Will it have a whole new acronym or go back to being SAC… who knows.

  •  I’ve been emailing back and forth with various people about how things work or questions they have. None of it has been anything earth shattering but it has brought to light some discrepancies in various governing documents, particularly the Manual of Duties and Responsibilities. I’ll be getting out the red pen and trying to clean this up in the near future.

Upcoming thus far:
  •  SCLD Fall Meeting Oct. 3-4 in Purchase
  •  Meet with you lovely people again Nov. 20 at FIT in Manhattan 

Respectfully submitted,
April C. Davies
