Hi Code4Lib,

It has been more than two weeks since I originally sought comments on the Code
of Conduct <> changes procedure
mentioned in my last email. Since there were no alterations to the
procedure suggested, I opened a community vote on the topic:

The vote will run two weeks until Thursday, July 30th. There is no
eligibility for voting and email addresses are recorded only to prevent
duplication. Data will be erased afterwards. A simple majority can approve
the procedure, and as always please send your questions to the Community
Support Squad at [log in to unmask] or by messaging
myself (@phette23) or Natasha (@natasha) on Slack.

Your Community Support Squad Coordinators
Natasha Allen
