The Board agenda and documents are finalized two weeks prior to the conference and posted online. Anyone interested in viewing the agenda for the Board meeting, as well as the documents that accompany the agenda items, may view or download them from the Governance section of the YALSA web site. If you have questions about governance matters or want to share an idea, comment or question, please feel free to contact YALSA's President, or Tammy Dillard-Steels, YALSA's Executive Director. To stay up to date on the latest governance and Board issues, check out the YALSAblog. The President and other Board Members will post updates before and after the conference. Meetings of the Board of Directors are open to all members in good standing who wish to listen and observe proceedings. Members are asked to respect the fact that directors have an agenda to discuss and there may not be time for new business. Members are welcome to sit in the chairs around the perimeter of the room so that directors can be seated together for conversing and vote tallies. Members are welcome to share their comments, ideas, requests, etc. during the "Information Forum" that begins each meeting. If there are a number of guests wanting to speak, it may be necessary to set time limits for speaking. Members may not introduce new topics or speak during the board's general business, unless called upon by the President for input.
