Call for Committee Volunteers: ACRL College Libraries Section

(via Dena Hutto, Reed College)

Would you like to expand your professional network and contribute to the advancement of college libraries? Serving on a committee is a great way to become involved in ACRL and make an impact on our profession. If this sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to volunteer to serve on a 2018-19 College Libraries Section (CLS) committee.

How to apply

The time is now! Please visit http://www.ala.org/acrl/membership/volunteer/volunteerand complete the volunteer form no later than February 15, 2018. You will be asked to login using your ALA member ID and the password you created. Be sure that you are a current ALA/ACRL member before attempting to login.

Must I attend ALA Annual and Midwinter meetings in order to participate?

Onsite attendance at annual and midwinter is not a requirement of committee service. However, members of CLS committees are expected to fully participate in the work of their committees, whether they attend virtually or face-to-face.

For more information

Please see http://www.ala.org/acrl/aboutacrl/directoryofleadership/sections/cls/acr-clsecfor the College Library Section’s list of committees and their charges, as well as more general information about CLS, its officers, and activities.

What if I want to continue my current committee appointment?

Current committee members whose terms conclude at the 2018 ALA Annual Conference should submit a new volunteer form in order to be considered for reappointment.

I have more questions – how can I reach you?

Please email me directly at dhutto@reed.edu if you have questions about CLS committees or the appointment process. I look forward to hearing from you!
