In the Q&A, jesse asked if membership statistics for divisions have mirrored those for ALA, and you can see a chart that includes a breakdown at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13FTlx8DzERA4v4AukJj6WubGpM5tE2hCGUPtkRmwI9w/edit?usp=sharing

I have notes from the Steering Committee on this.

i. No vote – each division will have to go back and hold a special election later than the normal election cycle to vote for a new president elect and members of their individual boards. Business will continue as usual until SCOE comes back with their future recommendations.ii. Yes vote – a yes vote from all three memberships will not automatically create Core. The approval process will then move to the ALA level: communicating with and gaining support from the ALA Executive Board and the Committee on Organization (COO), and ultimately gaining approval from the ALA Council at the Annual Conference. Also during that period, staff will be working internally to put in place all the operational and process pieces necessary to seamlessly launch Core on Sept 1. Then in the Fall, there will be a special election held to elect a single president from the grouping of three presidents-elect. The remaining presidents elect will take positions on

the board for 2 year terms. There will also be a vote on a new President Elect for the new division.
