Call for Volunteers: ALA, Council, and Joint Committees (2020-2022 Term) — Deadline September 30, 2019

(via the American Library Association)

Julius C. Jefferson, Jr., American Library Association (ALA) President-Elect, encourages members to volunteer to serve on ALA, Council, and Joint committees for the 2020-2022 term (beginning July 1, 2020). Serving on a committee provides members with leadership training, networking opportunities, and experience in working on specific association topics.

The online committee volunteer form (http://www.ala.org/aboutala/committees/volunteer/frm_vol) opened on Monday, July 15, 2019. To volunteer, please complete and submit the form electronically (be sure to select “ALA” in the drop-down menu on the main form). To be considered for the 2020-2022 term, forms must be submitted no later than September 30, 2019. Any forms received after this date will be considered for the next term (2021-2023).

President-Elect Jefferson will make committee appointments in consultation with both the Committee on Appointments (responsible for ALA and Joint committee appointments) and the Committee on Committees (responsible for Council committee appointments). Committee appointments will be completed by the ALA Midwinter Meeting in 2020, with notifications sent to appointed individuals in Spring 2020.
