Dear ACRL Committee Chairs,
With 2019 coming to a close, I want to check-in with some updates and reminders before the new year.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to your staff liaison, Board liaison, or me if you have questions that come up throughout the year.

Please expect an email acknowledging receipt of your submission within one business day of submission. If you do not receive a confirmation, please email again or call Allison at 312-280-2519.
Last week, ACRL President Karen Munro sent an invite to all ACRL leaders for ACRL's first Virtual Leadership Council Meeting, which will be held in Zoom on Thursday, January 16, 2020, from 2:00–3:30 p.m. CST. If you have not already registered and would like to attend, please complete the Zoom registration.
ACRL President Karen Munro also recently sent an invite to all ACRL leaders for the ACRL Leadership Welcome Breakfast, which will be held at the 2020 ALA Midwinter Meeting. This session is primarily an opportunity for networking with a few announcements; it will not include a Leadership Council program. The Welcome Breakfast will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 7:00–8:30 a.m. EST, with brief remarks anticipated at 7:30 a.m. Please RSVP if you'd like to attend.
The volunteer form officially opened on December 2, 2019 and all applications will be due February 14, 2020. In the coming weeks, the ACRL Appointments Committee will be in contact with committee chairs for recommendations on reappointment. For more information on the volunteer process, please visit the ACRL Volunteer page.
ACRL offers use of its two Zoom virtual meeting rooms to its membership groups. If your group meets virtually, an agenda should still be submitted to your staff liaison and posted to ALA Connect at least 10 days before the meeting. The meeting minutes should also be submitted to your staff liaison and posted to ALA Connect within 30 days after the virtual meeting. Need to use ACRL's virtual meeting software? Check out our virtual meeting guidelines and handy online scheduler!
