ACRL DLS (Distance Learning Section) Section
(KINDLY FORGIVE ANY CROSS POSTINGS)
Good Afternoon, Distance Learning Section Members!
ACRL volunteers are an integral part of the Association who help shape the organization by advancing its strategic plan and influencing the direction of academic and research librarianship. Please note that volunteers are now being recruited for appointments that will be made for serving on ACRL committees for the 2017-2018 year. (See below for the link to the volunteer recruitment form that you need to complete to indicate your interest!)
The call to volunteer for the 2017-18 term was recently announced via ACRL social media and was published in the December 2016 issue of C&RL News, officially starting the new volunteer/appointment season.
Each section committee accepting appointments is now listed on the volunteer form at http://www.ala.org/acrl/membership/volunteer/volunteer. This standardized form is a simple and consistent way for ACRL members to volunteer for multiple committees, across the division and sections. After confirming that the correct committees are listed for your section, please feel free to forward the link out to your lists.
Volunteers are actively recruited through February 15, 2017. To ensure everyone has a chance to volunteer, most section appointments will not be made until after this date (two exceptions, 2018 Nominating and 2018 Conference Program Planning committees are appointed in late January).
Please consider getting involved in your Distance Learning Section by signing up today. Your help is needed!
