LAST CALL FOR NOMINEES FOR 2006 ELECTION
The ALA 2006 Nominating Committee has extended the deadline for nominees to run for the offices of ALA president-elect and Councilor-at-large on the 2006 spring ballot through August 31, 2005. After that date, those seeking to run may file by petition.
The Nominating Committee will select two candidates to run for president-elect and no fewer than 50 candidates for the 33 at-large Council seats to be filled in the 2006 spring election.
The president-elect will serve a three-year term: as president-elect in 2006-2007, as president in 2007-2008, and as immediate past president in 2008-2009.
The Councilors-at-large will serve for three-year terms, beginning after the 2006 ALA Annual Conference and ending at the adjournment of the 2009 Annual Conference.
The ALA President and ALA Councilors also serve in corresponding roles in the ALA-Allied Professional Association [ALA-APA].
