Hello CJCLS members!

Thank you for joining the Midyear Membership Meeting set for the ACRL CJCLS Section.

Please review our meeting Agenda, the most recent Exec. Cmte. Minutes, and the ACRL Discussion Form submitted for Midwinter in the “files” tab above.

Here is our meeting connection information along with an accessible time zone converter for January 27, 2017.


Name:   ACRL CJCLS Midyear Membership Meeting

Date and time: Friday, January 27, 2017 11:00am CST

Duration:             1 hour 15 minutes

URL: https://acrl.webex.com/acrl/onstage/g.php?MTID=e6883f4f2dedac025ec9063a9962a5b7e


The meeting room will open fifteen minutes before the start time.  Log in a wee bit early as you will need to register to join the meeting; a quick name and e-mail process.

Elois Sharpe at ACRL, who is assisting us, will make presenters to “panelists,” so that they are able to access all the features of WebEx. Though, if you are not speaking, you should mute your mic. 

All members will need a USB headset (and an Internet connection) to hear the audio. Exec. Cmte. members especially will need this to report/present as “panelists.”

Exec. Cmte. members who wish may send .ppt or .pdf files ahead of the meeting if they are to be displayed during your report. Send to: esharpe@ala.org  by C.O.B. 5:00 p.m. CT on Jan. 25.   

When you are presenting in the WebEx session, I will “pass” to you the WebEx white and green “ball,” you will turn on your mic and advance your documents and slides for the whole group online.

 

All other attendees will only have access to the chat room.  Please prepare brief text for “new business,” which can be shared via the chat feature.

Prior to accessing the meeting, you will need to have the most up-to-date version of Java downloaded.

If attendees have any difficulties accessing the meeting, they can call WebEx’s tech support number at 877-469-3239.

Here are a few tips we’ve discovered that you can pass onto committee members: 

1.            Make certain you have an updated version of Java.

2.            Make sure you have the most recent WebEx software by checking the system requirements . This especially applies to users accessing the meeting through a mobile device.

3.            Only use PPT or PDF files.

4.            You will need a headset for VoIP. If you are using a machine with a built-in microphone, you will need to disable the built-in microphone and enable the microphone on your headset (a USB headset is best).

5.            Please allow a few minutes to get in and test your audio, etc. before the start time.

Discussion 2014 ACRL/CJCLS Nominations

by Sara Metz on Thu, Aug 22, 2013 at 10:55 am

CJCLS Colleagues,

Next Spring, our Community & Junior College Libraries Section will elect a
vice-chair and secretary. Will you be one of those persons? We hope you will
consider taking the next step to add your name to our ballot.   We understand
that some of you may wish to get a year or two more experience on a committee,
serve as a chair, or jump to a different committee to learn about the other
work being done in the Section.  We hope, though, that one or more of you will
say, "It's my turn to give section leadership a try."

CJCLS Colleagues,

Next Spring, our Community & Junior College Libraries Section will elect a
vice-chair and secretary. Will you be one of those persons? We hope you will
consider taking the next step to add your name to our ballot.   We understand
that some of you may wish to get a year or two more experience on a committee,
serve as a chair, or jump to a different committee to learn about the other
work being done in the Section.  We hope, though, that one or more of you will
say, "It's my turn to give section leadership a try."

The Section vice-chair's job is to prepare one’s self for serving as the
chair in the following year. This is a 3-year commitment, one as vice-chair
(2014-2015), one as chair (2015-2016), and the last as past-chair (2016-2017).

Please be advised that vice-chair candidates will be expected to represent the
section at ACRL leadership meetings, including Leadership Council (1:30 - 4:00
p.m., June 27, 2014) at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas. They will
continue to represent the section at leadership sessions at the Midwinter and
Annual conferences during their term as vice-chair and chair.

Because of that I am including the following about both the vice- and the chair
positions:

The chair shall

    preside at all meetings of the Section,
    act as chief administrative officer of the Section,
    make appointments to all ad hoc committees and fill committee vacancies as
needed,
    serve ex-officio on all Section committees except the Nominations
Committee,
    perform other duties as required by the position.

The vice-chair shall

    preside in the absence of the chair,
    make appointments effective in the year she/he will serve as chair, perform
other duties as required by the position.

The secretary shall

    Preside in the absence of the chair, vice-chair, and immediate past-chair
(in such case appointing a secretary pro tem),
    Take and distribute minutes for all Executive Committee meetings, the
Section’s annual meeting, and any special meetings.

One of the roles of any committee is to "grow leaders." We hope that you will
consider this rewarding next step in your service to the profession.  Our
ballot deadline is iday, September 13.  Please call me if you have any
questions, wish to have your name placed onto the ballot, or wish to nominate
someone else. Please consider this leadership opportunity.

Thank you,

Sara Metz
