Ratification Voting Under Way
At its meeting during the 2012 convention in Seattle, the Delegate Assembly approved two resolutions. Final approval of these resolutions depends on the vote of the MLA membership on this year’s ratification ballot. All members in good standing as of 11 April are strongly encouraged to vote, especially since final approval of each resolution depends on a favorable vote from at least ten percent of the membership. The online ballot is now available in the members-only area of the MLA Web site; requests for paper ballots must reach the coordinator of governance by Friday, 11 May. The deadline for receipt of ratification ballots is 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on 1 June.
