Once again, ABA members attending BookExpo America will have an opportunity to get a full update on ABA activities and share their concerns and voice their opinions to the association's leadership.
On Friday, May 30, from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., in Room 301A/B, ABA will hold its Annual Town Hall Meeting. The Town Hall Meeting offers ABA booksellers an important opportunity to voice their opinions and to share their ideas with ABA Board members and staff in a less formal setting than at the ABA Annual Membership meeting, which follows. Members are encouraged to ask questions and make suggestions about Book Sense, sales tax issues, electronic gift cards, ABACUS, or anything else of concern. The meeting is open to all ABA members.
Immediately following the Town Hall Meeting, in Room 303A/B, will be the ABA Annual Membership Meeting, from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. ABA's official annual meeting will update membership on the past year and look ahead to future association projects. Voting cards will be available outside the meeting room two hours prior to the Annual Membership Meeting.
The meeting agenda is as follows: Call to Order, Report on the Election of Board Members and Officers, Report of the President, Report of the Chief Executive Officer, Old Business, and New Business. -- Dave Grogan
