As with all Council votes, this will not be an anonymous poll; individuals’ names will be associated with their votes just as they are in open Council meetings.

You may vote Yes, No, or Abstain. As noted by ALA President Jim Neal, for the vote to be valid, at least 50 percent of Councilors must participate. According to the ALA Bylaws, approval of the resolution in an electronic vote requires a 75 percent majority of those voting Yes or No. These requirements have been confirmed by ALA Parliamentarian Eli Mina.

Once the poll closes, Council Secretariat Lois Ann Gregory-Wood will tally the votes and Eli Mina will verify the results. Results will be announced no later than 4:30 p.m. (Central) on Tuesday, November 21. Results will be posted both on ALA Connect as well as this Council list.

ALA Treasurer Susan Hildreth posted the Resolved clause you will be considering on ALA Connect this morning (http://connect.ala.org/node/270959):

Resolved, that the American Library Association (ALA), on behalf of its members:

1. amends the educational qualification for the ALA Executive Director to make an ALA-accredited Master's Degree or a CAEP-accredited Master's Degree with a specialty in school library media a preferred but not required educational qualification.

Mover: Susan H. Hildreth, on behalf of the Executive Board

NOTE:  Background documents presented to the 2017 Midwinter Council are available at: http://connect.ala.org/node/270833
