    The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Image Resources Interest Group (IRIG) is seeking an Incoming Convener for July 1, 2023 - June 30, 2024. 
    IRIG positions are dynamic and flexible, and offer involvement with ACRL via collaborative and creative work and leadership. Membership in ACRL is required for this position for the duration of its term. The Incoming Convener will work to: 

    • develop event programming and project plans.
    • conceptualize and pursue IRIG initiatives and activities in support of member interests and ACRL's strategic plan.
    • communicate with members, ACRL sections and leadership, and outside organizations.
    • develop IRIG membership.

    There is a virtual orientation for new interest group leaders, and the new Incoming Convener will assume their responsibilities on July 1, 2023. After a year as Incoming Convener, that role steps into the position of Convener for 2024-2025. 

    Please contact Sarah Huber with any questions and/or to express interest in volunteering for the Incoming Convener 2023-2024 at your earliest convenience. Please put "IRIG Incoming Convener" in the subject line of email and include information about your interest in images in academic libraries, any previous involvement with IRIG, and your experience with committee/collaborative work (especially in virtual environments).

    Thank you for considering this opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you!
