I thought the Council list seemed awfully quiet. I asked Lois Ann Gregory about this and got this response: "The Council and several other ALA e-lists are down. The ALA ITTS dept. is working on the problem. In the meantime, the ALA Council will need to communicate via CONNECT. We apologize for ...

Hi Mary, Thanks for putting this together and posting it. I shared some of the resources on my Councilor blog and sent a link to my state association list.

Thanks for sharing the fun video. If we were debating meeting by teleconference, I'd definitely be against the idea tho. For many of the same problems as shown by the video. Once again, thanks for the mental health break.

One example of a time that could work for everyone might be right now as I write this. As I write this, it is 8am Saturday morning in Guam. It is 2pm Friday here in Alaska and 6pm Eastern. If we were to have a three hour meeting, Guam would finish by 11am, I'd finish by 5pm and my fellow councilors would ...

Hi Coral, Thanks for commenting! Your point that you can take a person out of their time zone, but not the time zone out of the person is well taken. Especially when I go to the East Coast, it takes me nearly a week to feel fully in sync with the local time.

Hi John, The open meeting requirement is easily met by publishing the link Council would be meeting at and allowing anyone to join, like our recent virtual ALA Membership meeting. As mentioned in another comment I made here, everyone would initially have their mikes disabled so could only speak after ...

Hi Brenda, Thanks for taking the time to comment. The spread of time zones would be a challenge. I wanted to point out that timekeeping on speakers would be pretty straightforward, especially if we use audio or video, which I hope our eventual software would do. The control of the microphones and ...

I agree with you that virtual meetings would never completely replace in-person meetings. Thanks for commenting!

Sorry that I've been so quiet for so long. Aside from being busy at work, I've been looking at the Strategic Initiatives and Enabling Strategies document. I think that our discussion here may be better served by commenting on the Enabling Strategies thread. I have done so at http://connect.ala.org/c ...

Hi Al - I can understand your frustration, but my concern is broader than the operations of the Washington office. Particularly since legislative success is only one of several possible measures of effectiveness AND because not all of our resolutions deal with federal legislative issues. I'd rather deal ...

Fellow Councilors and ALA Staff, I’d like to take advantage of your collective memory to ask whether ALA has done: 1) A study of the effectiveness of our passed resolutions AND/OR 2) Established criteria for what constitutes effectiveness (i.e. What are we trying to accomplish with our resolutions? ...

Hi Jim, Thanks for putting all of this together. I'm supportive of sunsetting ALA committees and Council committees. I'm thinking that two years without a report should be enough to trigger a dissolution recommendation from COO. But we do need to make sure that committee chairs are fully informed about ...
