Vice President's Report
« on: March 22, 2018, 07:48:16 PM »
It's that time again - the Nomination Committee is seeking nominations for 1st Vice President/President-Elect, 2nd Vice President/Conference Chair, and Secretary.  Any member current with their dues is eligible to run for a position. I just sent out a call for nominations to SUNYLA-L.  It's not too late to apply yourself!  Please let me know if you are interested in running for any of these positions or please encourage your colleagues who are looking to expand their leadership endeavors.

Elections are typically in April - I know work is underway for electronic voting option. Fingers crossed!

The position terms are:

1st Vice President/President-Elect:
The 1st VP serves a 3-year term.  The first year of the term they serve as 1st VP and are responsible for coordinating delegates, chairing the Nomination Committee, and helping the President as needed.  The second year of the term they assume the position of President and see to the running of SUNYLA and serve as the liaison to the SUNY Council of Library Directors.  The final year of the term they serve as Past-President and advise the President as needed.

2nd Vice President (Conference Chair):
The 2nd VP serves a 1-year term and is responsible for organizing the next SUNYLA conference (2019) including overseeing the various committees.  The 2nd VP will serve as a liaison between the conference library and SUNYLA.

The Secretary serves for two years, after election to office in even-numbered years.  The Secretary is responsible for recording SUNYLA Council meeting minutes, attendance, and votes, as well as distributing agendas, supporting materials, and ballots.
