Executive Board Membership and Meeting Schedule

CAPA chair Duffy Tweedy should attend LAUC-SD Executive Board meetings, but cannot make the currently-scheduled second Tuesday monthly meetings due to a conflict. Future LAUC Exec meetings will instead be held the first Tuesday of each month at 10:30 - noon, pending approval of D. Tweedy and Sam Dunlap.

In addition to the LAUC-SD elected officers, the chairs of the Diversity Committee and Research & Professional Development Committee will also be invited to LAUC-SD Executive Board meetings. The LAUC-SD members on the UCSD Academic Senate Library Committee and LAUC Statewide Committee on Professional Governance will be invited to Executive Board meetings as needed.

Late Additions to Local Committees

Penny Coppernoll-Blach and Marlo Young have been appointed to the Research and Professional Development Committee.

LAUC Buddies

LAUC-SD Priorities for the Year

Statewide, LAUC is focused on the resolution on information literacy. The LAUC-SD Executive Board felt that information literacy is being handled at UCSD Libraries by committees outside of LAUC-SD.

E. Cowell said that she would like LAUC-SD to promote communication about the professional activities of its members. V. Williamson suggested that such a focus could help ensure Research and Professional Development funds were spent.

Groupwise Mailing List

E. Cowell will request that the Groupwise "LAUC-SD Executive Board" mailing list be adjusted to reflect current membership.

Meeting adjourned at 11:05 AM.
