    Hello Councilors,<o:p></o:p>

    ALA President, Lessa Pelayo-Lozada has called for a special Council Meeting. The ALA Council will meet virtually on Friday, August 26th at 12-1pm Central time.<o:p></o:p>

    Per ALA Parliamentarian, Adrian Stratton, the purpose of this special meeting is to satisfy a procedural step to rescind the American Library Association Constitution. In accordance with Constitution Article XII (Amendments), Section 1, two (2) votes of the Council followed by a ratification by the ALA membership is necessary to amend the constitution. In my opinion, this meeting fulfills the requirements of this section in support of the approved direction by Council during the Annual Conference meeting. Rescinding a document is a form of amendment so it is appropriate to follow this process in parallel to the process to revise the bylaws.<o:p></o:p>
