Voting Opens in 2023 Core + ALA Election

Voting Opens in 2023 Core + ALA Election

Core members can cast their votes before the election closes on April 5 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. The Core ballot includes candidates for three Board positions: President-Elect and two Directors-at-Large. Results will be announced on Wednesday, April 12. Learn more about this year’s Core election.


Board Director-at-Large

Included on the ballot is an opportunity for ALA members to ratify the actions of the ALA Council to rescind the ALA Constitution and adopt a new general revision of the ALA Bylaws. Over the last six years, six different committees and working groups have been created or tasked with the work of updating and modernizing our governance structure to make ALA more nimble, better able to engage with members on the issues facing them now rather than six months from now, and allow us to be more iterative in a quickly changing world. Learn more about this proposal to be an informed voter.

ALA is partnering with election vendor Survey and Ballot Systems to conduct our spring elections. Members will receive an email from “ALA Governance Office” at telling you how to cast your vote.

If you have not yet received this email, you can go directly to the voting site and use the “Email me my login information” option to have your login sent to you.
