TO: ALA COUNCILORS
Attached are Guidelines for preparing and submitting Resolutions, Memorials, and Tributes to come before the ALA Virtual Council Meetings on Sunday, January 24th (Council I), January 25 (Council II), and Tuesday, June 26th (Council III). Any councilor, with seconder, may offer a resolution for consideration at the Virtual Council Meeting provided the resolution has been reviewed by the ALA Resolutions Committee. All resolutions must be received by the ALA Resolutions Committee at email@example.com at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the calling of a virtual meeting to order. This deadline ensures that final resolutions will be posted by the Council Secretariat (Marsha Burgess firstname.lastname@example.org) within twenty-four (24) hours of the calling of a virtual meeting to order.
When preparing a resolution for submission to the Resolutions Committee for consideration, please also fill out the Resolution e-Form available at http://www.ala.org/aboutala/governance/council/resolutionwebform. Although in some cases some components of the e-form may not be applicable, please try to be as complete as possible. Any information you provide will help to expedite the resolution process.
To allow other Councilors time to consider your resolution, please post your proposed resolution as a "Document" to the Council list, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Questions and concerns about Resolutions, Memorials and Tributes can be addressed to Mike Marlin, chair, Resolutions Committee, via email@example.com. The Resolutions Committee will review all moved and seconded resolutions and may suggest changes to the form and language of a Resolution, Memorial or Tribute for clarity and to assist the body in its consideration.
