Council I and Council II agenda adjustments?

    Hi all,
    I've been looking at the draft agendas for Council I and Council II & I'd like to get your feedback about a minor (but important) set of agenda-order adjustments regarding the Forward Together Resolutions Working Group (FTRWG) action items:

    At Council I:
    • Move to remove CD #8.6 (Council I Agenda) from the consent agenda ​
    • Move to relocate  CD #46.1 Item #3 (Standing Committees) to  the Council II agenda after CD #46.1 Item #5 (Board of Directors)
      • Standing Committees are subordinate to the Board of Directors; the Board of Directors resolution would need to be approved before the subordinate entities could be considered -- an entity should not be created before the group to which it is proposed to report is created.
      • Related question: would it make sense to also relocate CD #46.1 Item #5 (Board of Directors) to Council I as the final agenda item? (replacing CD #46.1 Item #3) ?
    • Then approve the agenda.
    ​At Council II:
    • Move to remove CD #8.7 (Council II Agenda) from the consent agenda 
    • Move to relocate CD #46.1 Item #4 (ALA Council) to after CD #46.1 Item #6 (Assemblies)
      • This will result in the following order for the Council II FTRWG / CD #46.1 action item deliberations :
        • Item #5 (Board of Directors)
        • Item #3 (Standing Committees)
        • Item #6 (Assemblies)
        • Item #4 (Council)
      • Standing Committees & Assemblies are proposed to be subordinate to the Board of Directors; the Board of Directors resolution would need to be approved before the subordinate entities could be considered -- an entity should not be created before the group to which it is proposed to report is created.
    • Then approve the agenda.
    Thanks for your thoughts,
    ​​​​​​​

    I agree that the Council agendas are likely going to need to be reviewed from consent, particularly as new resolutions come forward in these last days. I like the idea of putting the Core Values and Roundtables resolutions in Council I and then re-ordering the remaining resolutions for Council II, though I also imagine we may need to have some of our standing committee reports with action items moved to the front end of their agendas?

    Hello everyone, I'm not sure addressing Assemblies before Council would be a better order. Depending on discussion and amendments, the resolutions on Council could either be to eliminate it and replace it with something new (possibly Assemblies), make it smaller and have it consist of the Board, Committee representatives, At-Large and Assembly members (or some other combination), or have it continue with no or only minor changes. It seems to me this needs to be decided before a discussion of the Assemblies and their duties can take place.
