    Hi, All -

    I am passing along a message from the Round Table Coordinating Assembly's Bylaws Task Force. They are seeking feedback from all Round Table members. Please reveiw and respond to the survey when you have a moment.

    Let me know if you have any questions.


    Dear Members of all ALA Round Tables,


    ALA's Steering Committee on Organizational Effectiveness (SCOE) has provided recommendations that all round tables have the same membership categories, charge the same membership dues, and in other ways standardize certain aspects of governance. The Round Table Coordinating Assembly (RTCA)'s Bylaws Working Group is trying to assess the potential impacts of implementation on round tables and round table members. 


    We invite you to complete the following survey, which has nine questions and should take about ten minutes to complete:


    Thank you for your time and insights!

    Mark, on behalf of the Bylaws Task Force
