Need AFAS Candidates to stand for election

Dear AFAS Members,

We are in need of members to stand for the year 2013-2014 slate of offices for AFAS,  Vice-Chair/Chair Elect, Secretary, and Member-at-Large.  This a wonderful opportunity to give back and develop leadership skills.  Please consider assisting us with maintaining this Section.  If any of you are interested please let me know as soon as possible.  There are candidate letters of consent the nominees must submit.  

The section’s slate is due September 14, 2012

Here is additional information:

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


Rebecca H, outgoing AFAS chair
