At the 2014 ALA Midwinter Meeting, a resolution was proposed in ALA Council related to programming at the ALA Midwinter Meeting. That resolution was referred to the ALA Budget Analysis and Review Committee (BARC), assuming that there would be a financial impact to increased programming. When BARC reviewed the issue this spring, they referred it on to the ALA Conference Committee, which is charged with reviewing policies relating to ALA conferences, including the Midwinter Meeting.
Following consultation with Conference Committee Chair Jan Sanders, I am attaching a background briefing document and several supporting documents, including the Council resolution. This will be on the agenda at our meeting in Las Vegas, Saturday, 1-2:30, LVCC N225.
Let me know if you have other questions.
