In accordance with its Bylaws, CRL holds an annual meeting of its Council of Voting Members "for the transaction of such business as may come before the meeting.” This is the main CRL governance event, at which representatives of CRL voting member libraries consider and discuss new and ongoing CRL initiatives, elect new Board members, and vote on the annual budget for the coming fiscal year. The 2019 Council Meeting will be held in downtown Chicago on Thursday, May 23.

The Council Meeting will be followed by a Global Resources Collections Forum, exploring the challenges libraries face supporting today's research trends. This is a key opportunity for representatives of CRL libraries to help shape CRL's programs and strategic agenda. 

Event location details will be announced later; registration will open in early 2019. Save the date!
