Online Doc ALA Constuitution and Bylaws Committee reort to Council, Annuak Conference 2015

by James Rettig on Sat, Jun 27, 2015 at 05:49 pm

Council members,

Council members,

I am not attempting to preempt the Council Secretariat, just want to get this report from the ALA Constitution and Bylaws Committee into your hands on on your screens ASAP.  It includes an action item that might come before you tomorrow at Council I.  It proposes an amendment to two sections of article X of the ALA Constitution.  The current text of these sections is archaic, ambiguous, and confusing.  C&B proposes amending these two sections by replacing the current language with clearer language.   The Committee believes the proposed new language honors the original intent of these sections and expresses that intent more clearly.

Jim Rettig,

Chair, ALA Constitution and Bylaws Committee, 2014-16
