In June, the Association voted to adopt changes to the CALL Bylaws. These amendments were primarily adopted so that the Nominations and the Elections committees could be merged. Other amendments were technical in nature, inlcuding changing the language of the antidiscrimination article to correspond more closely with that of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL).
Since that vote, AALL has amended their antidiscrimination clause to include gender identity. In order that CALL be in compliance until another bylaws amendment is approved by the membership, the CALL Board passed a resolution to add gender identity. It is expected that this new amendment will be discussed at the Association’s September 2014 meeting and then voted upon by the membership.
