In addition to casting their ballots for officers, ALA members voted on three ballot measures. The proposed amendment to ALA Policy A.4.1.1, which would require ALA’s next executive director to hold an ALA-accredited master’s degree was not approved. Two additional measures were approved—an increase in personal member dues between $1 and $5 in September 2018, depending upon the membership type, and a dues adjustment that will increase association dues over the next five years not to exceed the percentage change in the national average Consumer Price Index (CPI), with the review and approval of the ALA Executive Board.

Below are the results of elections for ALCTS office and ALCTS members who ran for ALA Council. All terms are for three years (2018–2021). Additional election results, including those for ALA president, council, divisions and round tables, are available on the ALA website.
