**Activity in Current Reporting Period 

a)      Projects completed (For example, any procedures, tip sheets, checklists, etc. created during this period):


Updated information about the Student Chapter of the Year Award and had it placed in the November edition of NMRT’s Footnotes.


Worked with the NMRT Web Committee to update information about SCOTYA on ALA’s website, including nomination forms.


Researched a question regarding eligibility for the award and determined that NCATE-accredited programs can establish ALA Student Chapters and apply for the award as long as they are in good standing.


Sent an email to all SASCO Liaisons to ALA Student Chapters asking for their assistance in publicizing the award.



b)      Projects in progress but not yet completed:


            Update scoring information for the award.


            Review applications and select the award winner and runner-up.


            Notify recipient, runner-up and those chapters not selected for the award.


            Coordinate conference attendance and responsibilities of recipient with SASCO chairs

            and the Student Reception Committee to present the award at the ALA Annual

            Conference in Anaheim this summer.


            Prepare application for the following year, in consultation with new chair, if he/she has

            been appointed.



**Action Items/Issues To Be Resolved (What is left to do, based on your Planning Report?
Have there been any substantial changes in plans since then? What items, if any, have been deferred until next year?):


            The major activities that are left to do are dependent on receiving applications for the

            award. To date, no applications have been received, but it is hoped that we will hear from

            interested chapters before the February 29, 2008 deadline. At this point, nothing has been

            deferred for next year.
