    Council Fora is an optional meeting for Councilors and is intended to provide information and advice on resolutions coming before the body.  This gathering allows for:

    • Councilors to ask questions about policies, procedures, or Robert's Rules of Order related to Council or ALA in general
    • Networking with Councilors
    • Resolution makers to get feedback from Council Colleagues on resolutions they will be bringing to Council for consideration
    • Councilors to get their questions answered regarding resolutions or issues that will be brought before Council for consideration.

     What Council Forum is NOT:

    • A replacement for debate on the Council Floor
    • A voting event
    • A place for formal debate
    • A place that will decide a vote
    • A substitute for Council decisions

     Essence notes will be provided for those not in attendance. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Jennings (Council Fora, Facilitator) Susan.Jennings@ChattanoogaState.EDU.

    Hi all:

      Time once again to fill up the Council Fora agenda with items to discuss.  See Rodney's description in this thread explaining what Council Fora is.

    Since the agenda often changes, here's a link to a document that I will be updating as I receive agenda items.  Feel free to send me anything you wish to discuss at Fora and indicate which night's agenda.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VedcIdAcLc2IkMjkC_HI34w68H-DYillUhlr09VaEKU/edit?usp=sharing

    Is Council Forum open to all ALA members? I have inquiries from chairs of committees with action on the docket at Council.

    Hi Karen and all Councilors,

    In keeping with the open meetings policy of ALA, Council Fora is open to all members.  However, anyone attending (including councilors) must register in advance in order for us to try and keep the venue secure and safe for all attendees.  I'm posting registration information below for your convenience. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Eileen,

    There is no limit to the amount of registrants for the Council Forums. There was a waiting room and everyone was admitted, could you please provide me with their contact information so that I can follow up.

    Thanks!

    I can confirm. At one point I lost connection  and had to re-enter. I had to wait for admission, but I was admitted and rejoined when there was some 115 participants.
