Online Doc Volunteer for ALCTS

by Charles Wilt-IL (staff) on Tue, Nov 4, 2014 at 01:22 pm

Dear ALCTS Colleagues,

Dear ALCTS Colleagues,

In conjunction with the section chair-elects, I have the privilege of making committee appointments for the upcoming 2015-2016 term.  Each year the appointment process provides an opportunity to shape the future of ALCTS.  By thoughtfully pairing seasoned volunteers with first-timers, we incorporate fresh ideas and cultivate future leaders into the working fabric of our association.  Most of you are aware of the reward that comes from committee service, and I hope you will continue to volunteer your time and talent; you are the backbone of ALCTS, and the association’s continued success relies on you.   Yet I hope you will also take this opportunity to encourage ALCTS members, longstanding and new, who have yet to experience the fulfillment of committee service to consider volunteering.  It’s my view that the greatest benefit that comes from ALCTS membership is being part of a community of smart, dedicated individuals, and there is no more effective way to engage in this community than through collaborating with fellow members on meaningful work.

The appointment process will begin in the coming weeks and continue into late spring.  The appointing officers will make a sincere effort to place every volunteer on a committee.  To assist us, please keep these tips in mind when completing the volunteer form, which is available from the “volunteer” tab on the ALCTS homepage:

•     Fill out the form completely.  There is space for you to tell us about yourself.  Please do so.  The more we know about your talents and interests, the better we will be able to position you within the organization.

•    If you’d like to volunteer, but aren’t sure where you might be best utilized, write a brief note to the appointing officer to express your interest.  Ask about current openings and where you might be of service.  

•    Don’t turn down an appointment for a committee you did not request.  Sometimes there are committees for which there are few volunteers.  The appointing officer may be asking you to accept one of these positions.  You’ll gain experience that will be an asset should you seek future appointments.

•    Don’t forget about our Interest Groups.  Each IG has openings for a chair, co-chair, vice-chair and other positions.  Let the current chair know you are interested in helping out.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you for being part of ALCTS.   Our association thrives because of your dedication and service.

All the best,
Norm

Photo Scavenger Hunt

Running from Friday night through Monday of Annual (Friday, June 27 – Monday, June 30) you can score points by snapping photos of all the great people, places and things going on around you. Programs, meetings, booths, authors, Las Vegas landmarks and even fellow ALA-ers are on our daily photo lists. The Hunt will kick off Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. at ALCTS 101 in the Las Vegas Hotel Pavilion, where you'll be able to get a head start on the competition. Score the most points and you can win from our collection of fabulous prizes. You could win:

• Grand Prize: 2014 ALA Annual Conference Registration Reimbursement

• 2nd Place: $100 American Express Gift Card

• 3rd Place: $65 Barnes and Noble Gift Card

• 4th Place: ALCTS CE Certificate Good for one free individual registration to an ALCTS Webinar

• 5th Place: $25 Starbucks Gift Card

 

How to Play

• Snap photos of items from the posted lists each day. List items are not repeatable (each item only counts once towards your score).

• Post your photos to Flickr, Twitter, or Instagram (pick one service to use for the game) and TAG them with #alaac14 and #alctsac14.

Remember, don't split up your photos between the different services.

• If using Flickr, join the ALCTS at Annual 2014 Flickr Group and ADD your photos to the group.

• You can submit photos from a previous day's list to collect HALF the points.

• Points will be given based on the DATE TAKEN date in Flickr or the DATE POSTED date in Twitter and Instagram. This means if you post a photo on Instagram that you took the day before, you'll only collect half the points.

• All photos must be easily identifiable (i.e. photos of people should include name badges, photos of places should include distinguishing features or signs, etc.). Adding a caption describing your photo would help us greatly when tabulating points.

The list of daily items to be photographed will be posted to the ANMIG ALA Connect page, as well as the Flickr group discussion board by 8:30 am PDT each day. Winners will be decided by point totals and any ties will be broken by random drawing. All photos must be posted and, if using Flickr, added to the ALCTS at ALA Annual 2014 group by Wednesday, July 2 at midnight PDT. Winners will be announced shortly after Annual Conference and prizes will be redeemed through Julie Reese in the ALCTS Office.
