Board Ballots Due by April 26
Bookstore members have until midnight on Monday, April 26, to cast their ballots for the 2010 election of American Booksellers Association officers and directors. The ballots were sent to stores via e-mail on Monday, March 22.
One person per ABA Member ID number may vote, and a BookWeb log-in and the store ABA Member ID number are required.
The March 22 e-mail also included Board candidate bios and information on the Annual Membership Meeting and Town Hall, which are taking place mid-week this year, due to the changes in the BookExpo America schedule.
The Membership Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 26, from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. The Annual Meeting will be preceded by the Town Hall meeting. The Town Hall, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., offers ABA member booksellers the opportunity to express opinions and share ideas with ABA Board members and staff in a less formal setting than the Membership Meeting.
All voting is being conducted electronically, as authorized by a 2009 amendment to the ABA Bylaws. Questions about the elections should be addressed to ABA Membership and Marketing Officer Meg Smith.
