This is a call for a volunteer for a Marketing Coordinator for the ALCTS Continuing Education Committee.

Please respond if you are interested in this position or if you would like to nominate someone for this position. 

Please help us distribute this widely by forwarding it to others that may be interested:

The ALCTS Continuing Education Committee is searching for one of two Marketing Coordinators. These volunteers would be responsible for posting announcements for ALCTS CE events in ALA lists and other list serves and venues in a timely manner, as well as contributing innovative ideas for expanding marketing strategies. At present ALCTS CE offers 6 different 4-6 week web courses several times a year and webinars 3 or 4 times  a month, so this position requires time availability and dedication.  Besides being a very valuable service to ALA, this position is also a great opportunity to network with other librarians in the profession who volunteer in the Continuing Education Committee and to grow professionally. ALCTS CE members are entitled to complementary attendance to ALCTS webinars. The appointment is from December 1, 2014 to June 30, 2017. The bulk of the work is done virtually, but attendance to ALA Midwinter and Annual for reporting and networking purposes is highly desirable. Since this is an ALCTS appointment, interested volunteers need to be members of ALCTS.

If you or anyone you know are interested in applying, please contact María M. Pinkas, Chair of the ALCTS Continuing Education Committee at mpinkas@hshsl.umaryland.edu.  Include your contact information, professional affiliation, any related experience, and an expression of interest by Monday, November 10, 2014.

Due September 30

 Comment on vision statement—either email Jeannette and Jim directly or include comments in ALA Connect at http://connect.ala.org/node/228571

Due October 1

  • Make comments on ALA Connect about the goals and activities spreadsheet. The link to the spreadsheet and the beginnings of the discussion can be found on ALA Connect at: http://connect.ala.org/node/228875
  • Members consider whether to co-chair the group preparing to interview section and committee leaders as well as RUSA Staff about learning and publishing needs.

Please note:

Shannon will be setting up some sort of poll for us to identify times when we will be free at Midwinter in Chicago for

1) A committee meeting

2) A discussion forum

Please watch for this request. It is really hard to set up these sorts of polls because Doodle insists on keeping track of our time zones. Our deadline for setting up the sessions is October 3, so she will need to hear from you before that time.

I will have a draft set of discussion forum questions for your review by October 6 or soon thereafter.

DRAFT AGENDA

 

I. Welcome and introductions

 

II. Committee Project Updates (20 min)

 

Objectives: To review the work of committees in order to answer any questions or discuss any issues that have arisen recently

 

Prep: None, other than for liaisons for committees/task forces below:

 

  • Web Site Revision Task Force (Karen Munro)

 

III. Appointment of IS administrator positions (20 min)

 

Currently, administrator positions that sit on the Communications Committee are selected by that committee, which means that ½ of the committee works on various aspects of IS communications (web site, newsletter, e-mail lists, social media, ILI-L), and ½ serves as a de facto screening committee, with little to do otherwise. In consultation with the current chair of Communications, we agreed that we need to move responsibility for these appointments elsewhere, but haven’t yet figured out what that new process would look like.

 

Objectives: To begin discussions on how to appoint administrator positions so that we can have a new process in place before the next appointment cycle.

 

Prep: Consider other ways of appointing administrator positions other than the current model.

 

To join the meeting:

Name: ACRL IS Executive Committee Meeting

Start Time: 11/04/2014 1:00 PM Central

Duration: 01:00 hour
