I was very inspired by this last midwinter Council Sessions and Fora.  To continue the conversation about ways to integrate ALA's structures and governance...  If we can find a way to become One ALA we must overcome a major issue/opportunity as seen in all the reports:  Need to break down silos, ...

Stephaine, Writing a resolution is not tough. Let's do it. Do you have a Resolution started yet? We can all add to it. As the Mover, you will have control over the final drafts, until you present it on the floor. I'm looking in the Manuals for supporting statements. Anyone who can add why Library ...

IMHO, I say start writing it using the Resolution Model. Send it to the list with a deadline, like Sunday am. Then submit it to resolution committee. They will have more commitments and it will be in by the 48 hour rule. Send it to any ALA groups that will have to touch on it like Comm on Legislation ...

The work of SCOE has been necessary to address the successful future of ALA.  Their work has been insightful and informative.  In many areas, I agree with them.  We need to be an effective, nimble, inclusive, member-driven American Library Association.  The one issue where I disagree is the role of the ...

Hello Councilors, 1) Anyone want to help me write a resolution to make sure that what happen when all the monies were shifted from Unit reserves to operational cost with no accountability or promises restitution will not happen again.

Since this is a federal and state issue and an international issue, should we refer it. Or did you pass it by them already?

There are good points being made on the ALA Council Listserv.  A good point was made that these discussions should be on in Connect so there would be a record and others can see our deliberations and contribute.     So this is a test message to see what a Connect Discussion message would look like. ...

I would feel better about changing to preferred from required if I know the steps or model questions the search firm and committee would do to ensure that the candidate shared OUR passion for what librarians are doing.  I know we need a strong operational candidate, but I want priorities to be properly ...

I can only speak for myself.  The reason I wanted to see a Librarian in the role of leading ALA was not for image, but for setting priorities.  As we know, librarianship is not motivated by frugality or streamlining operations or clear single-minded mission.  This Executive Director will have to do all ...
