COMMITTEE MEMBER: Caren Luckie
The PLL Executive Board and the Nominations Committee have been examining our nominations procedure and by-laws for some time. Two issues have been plaguing the SIS: the high cost of mail ballots for annual elections and the difficulty of finding members willing to run for office in a contested election. Many smaller Special Interest Sections and Chapters have moved to an uncontested election, where a slate of candidates submitted to the membership by the Nominations Committee would be accepted without an election in the traditional sense.
The bylaw revisions before you for the 2000 elections (office to be held 2000-2001) take into account these two issues by giving the Nominations Committee "permission " to submit one name per office , the ability to announce the slate in PLL Perspectives (saving the costs of mailing), and providing a mechanism for members to submit petitions for further nominations. In addition, the By-laws Committee has standardized our bylaws for clarity based on the AALL Model Special Interest Section Bylaws. The major and substantive changes appear at Article IV, section 4 .
