Hello Council colleagues, Once again, we have the opportunity to discuss and vote on resolutions relating to the future of ALA governance based on the hard work, research, and expertise of our colleagues. I hope each Councilor will take the time to think beyond their own personal interests, preferences, ...

I believe the question at hand is one of policy vs practice: practice has been Councilors have been expected to pay to attend conference to participate in Council meetings (conference registration being a separate cost from travel), but policy says Council meetings are open to all members and does not ...

Sara, I love the points you bring up! As part of the goal to make Council more accessible to all - including councilors - we need to think beyond the everything-happening-in-person-at-conference model. I agree with Ann wholeheartedly: I think so much of the discussion that should happen on the Council ...

I want to thank Jessamyn for bringing this up again - and I want to support my colleagues who have raised their concerns with these revised rules. For me, this also connects with Ann's comments about changes needing to be made to Forum. I have long felt the conversation that happens at Forum would be ...

Amy, thank you to you and to the Transforming ALA Governance group for your continued work on this important project. Thank you, too, for highlighting the value of a Council-like body becoming advisory, which strengthens the various streams that policy can rise up from: from members, through a stronger ...

I agree that the Council agendas are likely going to need to be reviewed from consent, particularly as new resolutions come forward in these last days. I like the idea of putting the Core Values and Roundtables resolutions in Council I and then re-ordering the remaining resolutions for Council II, though ...

Hello Council colleagues! As I shared I would the other day, I have prepared and submitted a resolution to the Resolutions Committee to postpone voting on the FTRWG resolutions until the Forward Together Fiscal Analysis Working Group has had time to review them, allowing us to vote on these crucial issues ...

I appreciate the continued engagement around the necessary major changes our association needs to make in order to be more nimble, inclusive, and approachable, and while I don't agree with everything brought up in this string (and also would prefer to see this discussion happen in the information sessions, ...

Thank you, Oscar and April, for sharing this statement with Council. I think it is crucial that Council take long overdue action on the items BCALA bring up -- "that Council meeting policies, communication norms, and rules of conduct be re-examined and re-created with a diversity/equity lens" and that ...

Jennifer, thank you SO much for pulling this together. Part of the reasoning behind the request I made to the Council list yesterday was because I'm in the middle of finishing a large grant request, and I simply didn't have time to dig in to start writing. I think you have made an excellent start, and ...

Fellow Councilors, I'm not a resolution writer -- though count on me for a second! -- and I am wondering if any Councilor or group of Councilors is working on a resolution asking ALA to take action in prioritizing library workers in getting access to the COVID vaccine.  This was a discussion ...

It is essential to remember that members did have the opportunity to participate, since the introduction of the discussion occurred in a venue open to all members. At any point in the past several months, members have had the opportunity to chime in, as well as to speak with their divisional, chapter, ...

As we discuss this matter, I think it is essential that we as Council consider the statement that has been made by the Boards of 10 of the 11 divisions to support changing the language from "required" to "preferred." Our divisions, and their Boards, represent practitioners in the field and are charged ...

Roberts Rules-ing it over here... Jim -- when you land in JFK, can weigh in here and confirm which string you want the discussion on? As Chris mentions above, it seems the direction was to reply to the Documents and Discussion Connect post ( http://connect.ala.org/communities/community-home/diges ...
