    An area for clarification:

    Whereas gender neutral restrooms are not marked on facility floor plans and are not in locations throughout the Convention Center that are clearly marked and visible;

    -->

    Whereas gender neutral restrooms were not marked on facility floor plans in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, the site for ALA Annual 2018, and are not in locations throughout the Convention Center that are clearly marked and visible;

    I also would like a whereas to mention restrooms on meeting room/ballroom floors of conference headquarter hotels. I realize we have contracts well into the future, but we should be able to get accommodation from these large conference headquarter hotels.

    Are the gender neutral bathrooms also listed in the conference program book and mobile app?if not perhaps that should be added as well.

    I support and second this resolution, Should this be added to future contracts that ALA will be entering in to with conference sites?

    I would like to second this and agree but it is probably too late. I agree with Erica about adding this to future ALA contracts.
