CALL members will consider a proposal to change the existing CALL Bylaws, and vote upon these proposed amendments in the upcoming CALL Election from February 15 through March 15.
If approved, the proposed Bylaws amendments would:
(1) align the CALL membership categories with AALL’s membership categories by eliminating the “associate” member category (allowing those members to become full voting and office-holding members of CALL); and
(2) eliminate the requirement that retired members have been active CALL members for at least 10 consecutive years.
The Bylaws election will be available on the CALL Elections page of the website, so please remember to cast your vote!

Deborah Ginsberg, Valerie Kropf, and Jesse Bowman were wonderful candidates and were exceptionally gracious when informed of the results! Thank you so much to all of you for agreeing to run for a CALL office. I hope to see your names of the ballot again very soon!
I would also like to thank the Nominations and Elections Committee – Denise Glynn, Ramsey Donnell, Joan Ogden, Kathellen Bruner, Lenore Glanz, Lyonette Louis-Jacques, and Susan Retzer.
A very special thank you to Joan Ogden – she is a wealth of information and frankly the knowledge keeper of all things related to the CALL election. We would not have had such a successful election without her wonderful expertise.
This year we had a 54.1% voting rate.
In years past the rates have been:
- 54.7% in 2012/2013
- 45.4% in 2011/2012
- 46.5% in 2010/2011
- 51.9% in 2009/2010
- 47.8% in 2008/2009
Hopefully next year we can have an unprecedented turn-out to choose our new Board members from a wonderful slate of dedicated CALL members!
