  • 1.  last day to volunteer for an ALA committee!

    Posted Sep 30, 2021 08:46 AM

    Hi folks! Don't forget to submit your volunteer application for Association, Council, and Joint Committees by September 30, 2021!  That's TODAY!!! We encourage ALA members to lead together for change by volunteering to serve on ALA, Council, and Joint committees for the 2022-2024 term (beginning July 1, 2022). Serving on a committee provides members with leadership experience, new networking avenues, and the opportunity to impact specific association and library profession topics. 

     

    Members can volunteer via the online committee volunteer form. Again, to be considered for the 2022-2024 term, forms must be submitted no later than September 30, 2021.  Any forms received after this date will be considered for the next term (2023-2025). Read more details here!

    If you are a current member of a committee who is in the second year of your first appointment, you are not automatically added to the volunteer list, so please take action if you are in this position and want to continue to serve.

     

    Please contact governance@ala.org with any questions.

    If you are a chapter councilor do you have to fill it out or an elected position at ALA this year?

    Hi Trish,

    I think you can be a chapter councilor and volunteer to be on a committee. But the two aren't connected.
