Interested in meeting new people? ASCLA’s committees are a great way to get involved at the national level and make an impact, while having lots of fun. You can participate even if you can’t attend conferences; ALA’s online community, ALA Connect, and other tools offered by the division make virtual participation easy and engaging.
Below is a list of committees with current openings. As you can see, there are lots of ways to share your talents, influence major decisions for the association and make a difference in the library profession. Please review the list and find a place where you fit.
- Awards Committee
- Conference Programming Committee
- Legislative Advocacy Committee
- Membership Committee
- Online Learning Committee
- Publications Committee
If you are interested in serving on one of the committees listed above, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2015 with your preference(s). Members are needed to join these committees beginning July 1, 2015 for one and two year terms (all terms start July 1 and end June 30)
A special note: Consumer Health Librarians (CHIL) often work on their own in stand-alone libraries, in a larger library or library system. CHIL is a place where we can come together to discuss issues of common interest such as public heath crises, hard to find information, the question of balance and accuracy and where the line is between providing information and advice. Libraries from public, hospital, special, academic and other types of libraries can learn from and with our colleagues. Keep on top of trends and get the latest news. Share resources and information with other librarians through programs and resource pages. In our first year we plan to sponsor a program in Orlando. Let’s come together to grow healthy communities!
Don’t forget about opportunities to be involved via ASCLA interest groups, too!
