Get Ready for the Core Election

Get Ready for the Core Election

We’re excited to announce our first Core election. Balloting will take place in ALA Connect from October 5-25, 2020. All Core members in good standing as of October 5, 2020, will be able to vote in this special election. Information on how to access your ballot will be sent before the election opens.

The first President of Core will be chosen from among the three Presidents of the former divisions, ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA. There are also two candidates for President-elect. You can learn more about the candidates on our Core election page. There will also be an online town hall meeting with the candidates in October that will be recorded for those members who cannot attend.

Election results will be announced October 26, 2020, and the new Board of Directors will be seated on November 2. If you have any questions, please contact us at
