AALL eBriefing / Bylaws Vote on Proposed Name

Bylaws Vote on Proposed Name

At its November 2015 meeting, the Executive Board unanimously approved a recommendation that the Association’s name be changed to Association for Legal Information, and be submitted to members for a vote to change the bylaws to reflect the new name.

Voting will begin Tuesday, January 12 and results will be announced Thursday, February 11. Both the proposed bylaws revisions and sample ballot have been posted to AALLNET.

The name proposal is a result of the branding initiative that AALL undertook in the spring of 2015. For more information about the process, or to get involved in the conversation, listed below are additional resources.

The proposed name change has sparked some great member discussion. To further the discussion, and to answer your questions, two Virtual Town Hall meetings were scheduled for December. The first Town Hall was held on December 1, and a recording from the meeting is posted to AALLNET. The second Town Hall will be held Friday, December 18 at 11 a.m. central. 

Friday’s Town Hall will begin with a short presentation about the proposed name change, followed by a Q&A session. During the Town Hall, you will have the opportunity to ask questions by phone and by live chat.  You can also submit questions in advance to rebrand@aall.org
