ALSC Board of Directors Committee

In: Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) -- Governance

Greetings, Board colleagues.

I am calling an online meeting of the ALSC Board of Directors.

The agenda item is to respond to the Budget Committee's recommendation to fund the School-Age Programs and Services Committee proposal (attached) for Tween Non-fiction/fiction Paired List Bookmarks and Book List for up to $1500 from the FY2017 Children's Library Services Endowment funds.

Greetings, Board--

As we are currently convened in an online meeting, I would like to include an additional agenda item which has just come to our attention today regarding the Librarian of Congress. The Office of Government Relations (OGR) for the ALA Washington Office has invited ALA divisions to endorse a letter to the Senate Rules Committee asking them to rapidly vote to recommend to the full Senate that Dr. Carla Hayden be confirmed immediately to serve as the nation’s 14th Librarian of Congress.

Discussion March 2012 online board meeting: general agreement about discussion topic for the next Community Forum

by Mary Fellows on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 02:26 pm

This topic will be what we discuss the last 30 minutes of the Forum. (Note: Tuesday, April 10, 11:00 a.m. - noon ET will be our next Forum.)

During our first Forum, we discussed tween services; during our most recent Forum, we discussed changes to our Annual Meeting. What would we like to hold a discussion on at this coming forum?

 

Discussion Motions and seconds invited

It seems like we’re ready to move forward with some motions. I invite motions and then seconds for:

1. Approving the addition of the word “annually” to appendix IV on the bottom of page 4 of the Belpre MOU.

It seems like we’re ready to move forward with some motions. I invite motions and then seconds for:

1. Approving the addition of the word “annually” to appendix IV on the bottom of page 4 of the Belpre MOU.

2. Approving the change to the membership statement of Scholarships: Melcher and Bound to Stay Bound Committee from

“The committee is made of five members, including the chairperson. At least one committee member shall be a library school faculty member. An ALSC Program Officer serves as staff liaison.”

to

“Chair plus five members (6 total).  At least one committee member shall be a library school faculty member. All members of committee are virtual. An ALSC Program Officer serves as staff liaison.”

3. Approving the change to the membership statement of Grants Administration Committee from “Chair plus eight.”

to

“Chair plus eight members (9 total).  All members of the committee are virtual.”

4. Approving the Twitter guidelines as presented.

 

We do not need a motion for the choice of topic for the next Community Forum. It seems that virtual participation is the topic most are interested in discussing at this CF. Carolyn intends to continue the Forums, I believe, so perhaps there will be future opportunities to discuss our other topics.
