Well, is spring finally here? It has been a cold wet winter for most of us, but we have emerged into spring and I hope relatively unscathed.
So as we spring forward, let’s talk about what’s new.
Have you seen the new SUNY Website? It went live just a few weeks ago at www.suny.edu. It’s bright, colorful, interactive and clearly appealing to potential students. It shows great pride in all that SUNY is and what the campuses have become. You also will be able to see the new video that Chancellor Zimpher debuted at her State of the University address in January. It’s called “Best Day of My Life” featuring a potential student and campus life.
Another feature, which I think is important to our membership, is called “Now at SUNY.” There you will see press releases, twitter feeds, SUNY facts and latest news and information. And of course, links to all social media.
SUNYCUAD Board Meeting and Networking Reception
We will hold our April board meeting in Rochester the site of our 2015 SUNYCUAD Educational Conference. On Monday April 7, we have networking reception for our Rochester area colleagues. We will be at the Hyatt Regency (conference site) from 5:30–7:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and cash bar.
These regional receptions have been very successful. Please consider joining us and other SUNY professionals as we talk more about the conference and solicit new ideas and suggestions about what we can offer the membership in the Rochester are. It has been many years since we held our conference there and we are just thrilled to be back. We look to our Western New York friends to help lead the way. If you plan to attend the reception, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
And as I say each time, I strongly encourage all of the members to reach out to me or any member of the board with suggestions and feedback and add to the conversation.
All good regards,
Maureen Winney, President
SUNY Council for University Advancement
