The ALA Council is the governing body of ALA. Anyone can view posts in the ALA Council group by visiting their community webpages in Connect. Now that Council has fully migrated from the old e-list platform, non-councilors can also
subscribe to receive a daily email digest of any Council discussions.
To subscribe, visit the ALA Council group on Connect: https://connect.ala.org/communities/community-home?CommunityKey=c235def7-8884-4b09-96f6-9c7a2e516789 OR the "Basic Guide to the ALA Council" page on the ALA website: http://www.ala.org/aboutala/basic-guide-ALA-council-and-resources
On either page, you'll see a form that says, "Non-Councilors can subscribe to a daily digest of ALA Council posts". Enter your email into the field and click the Subscribe
You'll receive an email confirmation from firstname.lastname@example.org. Click the link in this email to activate your daily digest subscription.
The linked PDF provides this information in another format. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
