    • Complete a Board of Directors Action Form working with your ACRL staff and Board liaisons as appropriate.

    • Email your Board Action Form and supporting documents to Allison Payne with copy to your staff liaison, and your Board liaison by the deadline.

    • Please expect an email acknowledging receipt of your submission within one week of submission. If you do not receive a confirmation, please call Allison at 312-280-2519, as your message may have gotten caught in our spam filter.

    Midwinter Meeting Agendas: due January 16

    • It is a good practice to circulate a draft agenda by late December for committee member comment; agendas should be finalized 2 weeks before the meeting.

    • Send an electronic copy to Megan Griffin,, by the January 16, 2015, deadline. Early submissions are greatly appreciated.

    • Post your meeting agenda and meeting location, date, and time to your committee’s ALA Connect space as a public post or calendar event.


    • If your committee is meeting virtually, we would still like to receive your agenda and have you post it to ALA Connect at least 10 days before the meeting. 

    • If your committee is not meeting an agenda is not needed.

    The ACRL Board of Directors will hold two meetings at the 2015 Midwinter Meeting:

    Members who have items on the Board agenda are encouraged to attend the Board meeting the item is scheduled for.
