Hello, and welcome! I will be monitoring chat.
Is there anyone else I should promote to panelist so they can mute/unmute
All attendees are muted and no video. Use the participates list to hover over someone's name and you can allow them to unmute if they want.
Attendees can use the participants list, hover over their name and raise their hand to indicate the want to talk.
They can also just use the chat box
It's the majority of those who vote, correct? Not a majority of those eligible to vote.
Keri: yes, exactly!
So basically you are asking members to approve a restructuring of ALA personnel?
The infographics is very interesting but before it's disseminated more broadly, should someone review and be sure that all current sections of all 3 divisions are represented somewhere. (For instance, I see no mention of acquisitions - and no-collections is not the same thing!). If the members are to see themselves in th enew division, their current "identities" should be included.
I notice that the budgeted revenue for Core is higher than the combined revenue for the three divisions. How was that number reached?
Those are logical groupings as far as members are concerned... this looks like a valuable grouping to me
You did answer my question
You can have your name added to a volunteer list if Core passes https://core.ala.org/get-involved/
Here is the link to the Financial Working Group report: https://connect.ala.org/HigherLogic/System/DownloadDocumentFile.ashx?DocumentFileKey=20dcb442-111c-18f3-a5d5-a3be9a4ac568&forceDialog=0
Happy to take a closer look. Where did you say the more detailed version is available?
Here is the more detailed budget:
And all the reports are here: https://core.ala.org/reports/
Yes, everyone who is a member of the three div on Aug 31 will be converted to Core on Sept 1
It will remain on calendar so we don't have everyone renewing Sept 1
Isn't there a danger that if your membership renews in January/February and you don't renew now, you wouldn't be able to vote for/against CORE?
Good question, TBD.
Everyone who is a member on January (I think 31)? can vote
you should have gotten an automated email
if you're eligible
Yes, all members as of 1/31 will get the ballot
When did the voting email go out?
there's a few months grace period for renewals before you go inactive
great! I'll be on the lookout
Donate it to the Office of Diversity!
Will there be a discussion at ALA Annual?
a formal one
might want to be clear that it's not official after a member vote. needs formal approval from council
