Advising Resources for Potential Nominees

Prospective candidates may have questions about the responsibilities of section officers. Candidates may find it helpful to review Chapter 4: Communities of Practice in the ACRL Guide to Policies & Procedures, which includes details on the duties of section leaders, http://www.ala.org/acrl/resources/policies/chapter4.

Please advise vice-chair candidates that they will be expected to represent the section at ACRL leadership meetings, including Leadership Council (1:30 - 4:00 p.m., June 22, 2013) at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago. They will continue to represent the section at leadership sessions at the Midwinter and Annual conferences during their term as vice-chair and chair. Please be sure that candidates for other offices are aware of the duties and responsibilities as articulated in your section governance procedures.

Thank you
