LAIR Zoom Meeting Planned for August 11, 2021 as
LAIR 2020 and 2021 Conferences were Cancelled for Due to COVID-19
A message from our President on upcoming LAIR event:
I hope you’ve had some time to step away from work and relax this summer. I wanted to share a few important updates. Our next LAIR meeting will be on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 from 12:30PM to 1:30PM. I know it’s during lunch, please feel free to consider this an online lunch meeting. There are two important actions that will need to be taken during the meeting.
- Changes to the Constitution. As you may know, the Constitution is a little outdated. For example, the Constitution combines the Secretary -Treasurer position. Given, the expanded duties of maintaining the website and our social media platforms, we are proposing that the position be split. FYI, the current structure is two positions. We just need the Constitution to reflect our current structure. Please see attached the proposed changes to the Constitution. We are asking that you all review the proposed changes prior to the meeting. During the Aug 11 meeting, we will hold a live vote. (Constitution has been updated with a newer version previously approved by LAIR Members. The new version is posted on this website.)
- Nominations and New Officers. It’s time to bring in new officers. Please send in nominations for the following positions: Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Dane O’Blanc will move to the President position. We are asking all nominations be submitted by COB, Friday August 6th. During our August 11th meeting we will vote (live), based on the nominations received. Please send all nominations to Claire Norris () and Dane O’Blanc (); make sure to include the name of the nominee and the position that you are nominating them for.
If you have not received a calendar invite via email, with zoom information included, please contact Claire. We hope to see you there!
The LAIR Officers are hoping that Covid will not factor into the future LAIR Conference 2022, and that you will find next year’s conference even bigger and better than ever before. We look forward to seeing you in 2022!
A Note About IPEDS Workshops are Cancelled
With the current COVID situation AIR is holding off on face to face IPEDS workshops to see when travel bans will be lifted. At this time, they are unable to definitely commit and register attendees via their website. As the LAIR 2021 Conference is planned we hope to be able to offer these IPEDS Workshops as originally planned.
AIR does apologize for not being able to commit at this time.
