ITEMS TO BE SCHEDULED BY LAUC-LA CHAIR:
Set the day, time and location for Executive Board meetings.
Begin the committee appointment process.
According to the Bylaws, the Executive Board charges the committees and appoints all of the members. The Chair designates the chairs. Beginning with the Transition meeting, the Chair participates with the Board in choosing the committee members. The Chair developes and writes the charges, and presents them to the Board for approval. Upon Board approval, the Chair sends the charges to the committee chairs and members.
Notify each person that he or she will be editing the LAUC-LA Handbook during the year, and ask each person to request an account from Miki Goral. The chair (or the chair's designee) updates all committee rosters and charges as soon as applicable.
The Fall Membership Meeting has traditionally been held during the first week of November. In 2011 it was scheduled for late October, which was challenging because the 2012 Program Committee was not yet constituted. Because we now have use of the Young Research Library Conference Center, we have the option to use either the YRL Conference Center or the Faculty Center. The Fall meeting has been a sit-down luncheon for the past 2-3 years, followed by the business meeting and introduction of new librarians.
The LAUC-LA election calendar is set according to the Election Day date set for the LAUC Statewide election. See the Election Committee page and the LAUC-LA Bylaws for details.
Reserve venue as soon as possible. If necessary, book two dates and cancel one later. Make sure to check for the UL's availability.
