The Library Development & Legislation Committee has created a Library District Subcommittee, chaired by Jessica MacPhail, to shepherd district legislation from the drafting stage to passage. An important part of that process will require input from WLA members, and achieving consensus within WLA will be required for the success of this bill. Interested members are invited to attend "Rethinking Wisconsin Libraries" at the WLA Conference on Wednesday, November 3, 8:45-10 a.m., to learn more about library districts. There will also be a program devoted to "Top 10 Political Issues" in 2005 with discussion about districts and other library legislative and funding issues. Check the conference website for details.

On Wednesday, September 15, the Committee on Organization (COO) met with members of the WLA leadership to discuss proposed changes in the Association Constitution and Bylaws. The meeting, though attended by only a few, gave members a chance to ask questions about the changes and allowed clarification of key points. COO will be recommending to the WLA Board that the Association's Rules of Order, currently Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised, be changed to The Standard Rules of Parliamentary Procedure. These are the rules used by the American Library Association, and they were recommended by David Weinhold, WLA Parliamentarian. COO will also recommend that language regarding recall of elected officers and directors be added to the bylaws. Currently, these provisions are part of the procedures manual, requiring only board action. Proposed changes and comments, along with a summary of the meeting on 9/15 can be viewed at: http://www.wla.lib.wi.us/board/structure/amendments.htm....

There's still time to order and display your "I Love Libraries & I Vote!" buttons and decals! And, of course, make sure to vote on November 2 before you come to the WLA Conference. The "I Love Libraries & I Vote" campaign is going strong. WLA has distributed nearly 19,000 buttons and 6,000 static-cling decals with the I Love Libraries logo. (Thanks to Deb Haeffner, South Central Library System for creating the design.) Library supporters in Illinois, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, and Florida have placed orders for I Love Libraries promotional merchandise. In addition to distributing the stickers and decals, several library systems have hosted or have scheduled Library Listening Sessions with state legislative candidates and office holders.
