Dear CSD Members,
The CSD Board has prepared some amendments to our bylaws. If you have any questions or would like to make comments, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking for our full bylaws? Click here. We will send out the voting ballots in the near future.
2. Change the Performer's Showcase Chair to an appointed, voting Board position in article 11.051.
Reason for this change: The Performer's Showcase Chair is responsible for one of CSD's long-standing core activities that provides an important service to the library community.
3. Change title of Web Editor to Communications Chair throughout.
Reason for this change: Communications Chair more accurately reflects the responsibilities of this position.
4. Remove article 11.0524 requiring 1/3 of ballots be returned for valid elections, to a simple majority of returned votes.
Reason for this change: This change makes CSD election policy consistent with other OLA Divisions which allow simple majority for elections.
5. Specify nominations for Lampman Award are to be made by Oregon residents in article 11.103.
Reason for this change: During the most recent nominations we received several nominations from outside of the OLA organization, Since the Lampman award honors "a living Oregon author, librarian, or educator who has made a significant contribution to Oregon in the fields of children’s literature and library services," it makes sense to open nominations to Oregon residents.
