2012 Draft Committee Chair FAQ
There's already a "Member Chair FAQ" in the Help section at http://connect.ala.org/chair-faq, so what I'd love to hear from WAC members is what's missing from it? What else would you or your chair want to know that we should add to it?
So how is this information getting spread to the Chairs? I'm a chair of a committee and this is all new to me...

Theoretically, every staff liaison sends the Committee Chair FAQ to new chairs each July. When we do the big roster flip the night of June 30th, I send a message to all ALA staff reminding them to this, but anecdotal evidence suggests it doesn't always happen. I'm not sure what else ITTS can do, but I'm open to suggestions.
Also, I know some units, like AASL, ACRL, and ALSC have written their own Connect FAQ sheets for their members. I don't know if they send those out regularly, though.
Can CONNECT or ALA somehow send this link to all new chairs?
Vicki, do you mean an automated email rather than the current manual send from each committee's staff liaison?
