In this blog post written by Andrea Puglisi, we decided to ask the nominees fun questions to get to know them! We asked them about their favorite banned book characters, what they enjoy about IFRT, and in the spirit of the new year and new decade we asked them about what new resolutions they had for intellectual freedom and librarianship!

IFRT Bylaws - Understanding Your IFRT Ballot

[Proposed IFRT Bylaws Changes]

This coming ALA election cycle (March 2020) you will see multiple questions about some proposed changes to the bylaws of the Intellectual Freedom Round Table. These proposed changes are due in large part to deadline changes from the broader ALA organization creating ripple effects.

While the Bylaws & Organization Committee of IFRT was reviewing the bylaws to account for these new ALA deadlines they also found other parts of Article IV, Section 5 that could be clearer. The proposed changes are designed to make the entire section about the Nominating Committee easier to understand.

There are 5 items that will appear on the ballot to represent the 5 changes that were proposed. The five items you will see on the ballot are:

* Clarifying the responsibilities of IFRT's Nominating Committee regarding elections.

* Describing the responsibilities of IFRT's Executive Committee during the election.

* Elaborating on the nomination process.

* Omitting the deadline of January 15th from the IFRT Bylaws.

* Clarifying the process of how a candidate is elected in an IFRT election.

The current IFRT bylaws are available on the IFRT website at: ala.org/rt/ifrt/bylaws<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05MDcyMzUxJnA9MSZ1PTEwMjQwMzIxNTgmbGk9NzMyMDUyNTI/index.html>.
