    Dear Councilors,

    ALA is pleased to announce that the 2020 Executive Board Election at the upcoming Midwinter Meeting will be conducted electronically.  All councilors – those onsite and off – will be able to vote. 

     

    Executive Board Candidates' Forum

    The Executive Board Candidates' Forum is on Monday January 27, 2020 at 12:15 – 1:15 pm Eastern Time in the Council Room, Pennsylvania Convention Center Terrace Ballroom IV. The event will be live streamed for offsite Councilors. Instructions for accessing the live stream will be provided via email to all councilors and posted to the Council list in ALA Connect prior to the live stream date. Executive Board candidate biographical information can be found at http://www.ala.org/aboutala/annual-and-midwinter-2020.  Please note that candidates may be nominated from the Council Floor during the Council I Meeting on Sunday, January 26.  Biographical information for petition candidates will be posted as received. 

     

    Councilor E-mail Address

    Prior to Midwinter, all Councilors will be responsible for ensuring their e-mail addresses are correct in their ALA member profile. This is very important as the email address in your member profile will be used for the election database. Please double-check that your ALA member profile is up to date by January 13, 2020.  You can update by logging into ALA.org and editing your email address in the "My Account" section.  After January 13, 2020, ALA staff in conjunction with election vendor, SBS, will be conducting a verification email and bounce report. If your e-mail is inaccurate in your ALA member profile after January 13, 2020, you will not receive an email to cast your vote electronically. Please contact Sheryl Reyes at sreyes@ala.org with any questions about updating your email address or other election questions.

    Please note that all times listed are in Eastern Standard Time (ET), local time for the Midwinter Meeting. Offsite Councilors will need to convert their time zone to Eastern Time. Time Zone Converter Resource: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
