    The American Library Association is pleased to announce an inaugural Virtual Volunteer Fair to be held on September 14, 2021, from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm CT.  The fair will be an opportunity for ALA Members to drop in and speak with committee members and staff liaisons from various ALA groups that offer volunteer opportunities, including ALA Association committees, Divisions, and Round Tables.  This is an opportunity for members to ask more specific questions about a committee or group's work, time commitment, typical schedule, how to volunteer, etc! 

     

    Members should register for the event, but attendance for the full two hours is not required.  Members can drop in and out as their schedule allows.  The various groups will be divided into breakout sessions, and attendees will be free to move amongst the breakout sessions.  ALA Staff will be available in the Zoom to assist with tech, help members move from room to room, and to answer other questions.

     

    Please contact governance@ala.org with any questions.
