Understanding Your IFRT Ballot
This coming election cycle (April 2020) you will see multiple questions about some proposed changes to the bylaws of the Intellectual Freedom Round Table. These proposed changes are due in large part to deadline changes from the broader ALA organization creating ripple effects. While the Bylaws & Organization Committee of IFRT was reviewing the bylaws to account for these new ALA deadlines they also found other parts of Article IV, Section 5 that could be clearer. The proposed changes are designed to make the entire section about the Nominating Committee easier to understand.
The current IFRT bylaws are available on the IFRT website at: http://www.ala.org/rt/ifrt/bylaws.
There are 5 items that will appear on the ballot to represent the 5 changes that were proposed. The five items you will see on the ballot are:
225 N Michigan Ave, Suite 1300 | Chicago, IL | 60601 | USA
