My name is Jillian Hayes and I am this year’s president of the SUNY Buffalo ALA Student Chapter. I wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself and let everyone know that I will be at the Welcome Reception on August 26th from 5:30-7pm in Baldy 553/555, along with the presidents of the other clubs (LIS-Graduate Student Association, Special Libraries Association, Public Library Association) in order to welcome new students and introduce ourselves and the clubs we represent. Returning students are also welcome and encouraged to attend and meet faculty and other students from the program.
I also wanted to take the time to welcome Gina Temperato as the vice president this year. In addition to her duties here, she is also the president of the SLA here at UB. We are still looking for those who may be interested in taking over the positions of secretary and treasurer for the upcoming year.
My hope is for members to submit blogs, ideas, reviews, jobs, and other content to our website and social media accounts. I will be working in the next few weeks to bring everything up to date so that we can reach more members, more often. Any questions or suggestions you may have, please direct them to me via email at either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
I am really looking forward to this year and hope that you are too!
