ByLaws Ballot DEADLINE is postmarked by JULY 27 | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

All TLA members will be getting a paper copy of the TLA Newsletter this time around--and a ballot for bylaws changes.

 

Several modifications to the TLA By Laws were recommended at the June board meeting, including:

*allowing TLA members who don't live in Tennessee to run for Secretary or President
*allowing the structure for online voting in the future!

 

Please consider the bylaws changes and make your voice heard!

 

Rest assured that your opt-out-of-mailing preferences have been noted and will be honored with future mailings.

 

Please note that the PO Box number listed on the ByLaws Changes ballot is incorrect. Please mail your ballot to:

P. O. Box 241074
Memphis, TN 38124-1074

 

THE DEADLINE IS JULY 27,
