ALA Council I

Sunday February 11, 2018
The agenda was not very full as most resolutions are still being worked on and will appear in Council II or III.
Two areas of interest for this meeting are:
Reports of ALA/Council Committees (cont.)
– ALA Scholarships and Study Grants Committee 10 Mins
Sarah LeMire, Chair- a new fellowship was introduced in honor of Lois Ann Gregory Woods for her historic 50 year tenure with ALA.  This is a fellowship for mid level library workers to become involved in governance at ALA.
It was passed unanimously.  As the final information is provided I will post it to Kanlib in the event people want to apply for the fellowship.

– ALA Membership Committee Report on ALA Personal Dues 15 Mins
Adjustment, Janet T. O’Keefe, Acting Chair,
A resolution came to the floor and was passed to include in the Spring ballot an increase in dues between $3-$5 to better respond to the increase strategic initiatives that ALA has adopted.  This will be a one year increase and like previous fees plans will follow the Consumer Price Index for subsequent years.

This will appear on the March ballot for membership to consider.
