Welcome to the SUNY Learning Network Advisory Council space.

Advisory Board History, Members and Mission

At the SUNY Online Summit in February of 2009, the SUNY Learning Network (SLN) presented a plan and a draft set of bylaws to the Directors Of Online and Distance Learning Environments (Doodle) for the establishment of an Advisory Structure to guide SLN's future efforts and direction.

In online discussions during March, the Doodle group considered the proposal and made several changes to the bylaws. A copy of the bylaws may be viewed at: SLN Advisory Council Bylaws.
In April, two representatives from each of the SUNY sectors stepped forward to sit on the first SLN Advisory Council.
On Tuesday, May 27, a quorum of the representatives met at the Conference on Instructional Technologies (CIT) to ratify the bylaws and elect officers.
