b. Numerous new librarians to welcome at Assembly
c. Note regarding ExComm agendas: Proposals from membership for possible ExComm
agenda items must be received by the Chair by the Friday preceding the meeting date.

II. Reports

a. Treasurer (R. Brandt)
Balance of $107,110.00. Chair confirmed with Library Business Services that budget was
approved with one change: DLA budget was shifted from FY18 to FY19 since they would
prefer to allocate funds in the same year they will be spent. DLA funding will need to be
part of our budget request for FY19 and conference funding part of the request for FY20
though that means conference planning will have to start before funding is confirmed.

First meeting will be Thursday Sept. 21. Email any discussion suggestions to Quigley.
c. LIBR meeting (J. Rosario)
First meeting of the Academic Senate Library Committee will be Thursday Sept. 21.
d. LAUC statewide conference call (B. Quigley)
Two meetings have taken place: a transition meeting and the September meeting have
now been held.

i. Transition: past year review and look forward to coming issues. Expect to assign
group to review Position Paper 5 (on the academic librarian at UC.)
ii. September meeting:

● Call by LAUC web manager for updated rosters.
● SLASIAC Rep. from LAUC will be Jennifer Chan from UCLA.
● There will be a LAUC Rep. appointed to the Direction and Oversight
Committee (DOC): individual not yet named.
● Call for volunteers are forthcoming: LAUC Social Media Manager, Rep.

iii. Distinguished Librarian Award Committee appointments approved: Jennifer
Nelson (Chair) and members: Julie Lefevre (Affiliated Rep.), Susan Xue (Library
Rep.), Imadeldin Abuelgasim (At Large). Will also seek a Faculty member by
January.
iv. ExComm discussed and agreed that the two members of the Committee on
Diversity appointed by the SDC may include Affiliated Library staff, even though
the SDC itself has no Affiliated members. One current member is staying on, so
SDC will be appointing one additional member in accordance with recent bylaw
changes.

c. LAUC-B @ 50 working group (B. Quigley)

LAUC at 50 was this past year for Statewide. 2018 will mark LAUC-B at 50.

to form a working group to review the Bill Whitson history, circa 1992, and
review the LAUC-B archives for 1992-present for events to highlight.

d. LAUC-B Assemblies start time (B. Quigley)

Discussed possible change from usual early bird time slot for Assemblies.

Quigley approached a potential speaker based on our previous discussion.
Discussed the feasibility of possible dates for the assembly, which Quigley will
explore further.

IV. New Business

a. Bioscience, Natural Resources & Public Health Library proposal

A proposal was circulated last week, with an Oct. 6 comment deadline.
ExComm will draft comments from LAUC-B, in its advisory capacity, and solicit input
