Change in SENYLRC's Management

John Shaloiko, Executive Director of Southeastern New York Library Resources Council has announced his retirement due to health reasons. John, who has been director of the council for the past 21 years, will step down at the end of August 2014. The Board of Trustees has appointed Tessa Killian, SENYLRC's Associate Director, as the Interim Executive Director.

SENYLRC's NEW Special Interest Groups

Southeastern is listening! Many of our members have asked for more ways to interact with each other and meet colleagues with similar interests. With that in mind, we would like to establish Special Interest Groups for staff of member organizations. We have created a quick, 3-question survey to help us meet your needs. Please take a minute to give us your feedback, and we will do our best to accommodate based on what we hear from you!

The survey is here: What Kind of Special Interest Group are You?
