  • 1.  Council Delegate Question

    Posted Jan 11, 2024 03:24 PM

    Hello all,

    I am unable to attend LLX in person or virtually this time.  As the YALSA Councilor, it is important to be able be aware and have a vote on Council items. I was trying to make sure that YALSA would be represented, and was informed that no one (including my Division Chairperson) can vote in my place. Since I have not had this issue before, I was unaware of this. 

    This is concerning, because as a Division, there are many things being discussed and voted on that are of importance to YALSA. 

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    ALA members can attend in-person or virtually (register for the zoom) and will have the opportunity to speak after Councilors have had their turn. I understand this isn't the same thing as delegating your vote, but it does provide YALSA folks the opportunity to provide context and speak about the topic up for vote.

    Would that help a little?

    For LLX, yes. I have let my Division Chairperson know.

    Hi All,
    Happy New Year! Sharing some information, please feel free to contact me.

    During a membership meeting, all ALA members can speak.

    During a Council, only Councilors may speak, unless given permission to speak by Council.

    There are two ways to attend Council meetings, in person at LLX (Baltimore) or virtual.
