Committee Appointment Information

As the Vice-Chair of the ACRL Instruction Section (IS), I invite you to get involved in IS by becoming an Instruction Section member and by volunteering to serve on an IS committee. Serving as a member of an IS committee provides a wonderful opportunity to interact with your colleagues as we work together to accomplish our mission.

I will be making most appointments to IS committees after the February 28th, 2024 deadline, and these appointments will take effect July 1st, 2024. The following are the current IS Committees and see below.

Important: Please note that as some committees are much more popular than others, being flexible in your volunteering selections makes it more likely for you to get matched to a committee.

In order to serve on an IS Committee, you must be an ALA member and an ACRL IS member. Committee members serve for two years with the possibility of reappointment for a second two-year term. I encourage first-time volunteers to consider serving as committee secretaries. Committee secretaries take and disseminate minutes of committee meetings and update the committee web page with content from the committee chair. Committee secretaries serve for one year, then they may be appointed to serve as full members the following year. Please keep in mind that committee members and committee secretaries must be able to participate fully in the committee’s online work.

To volunteer, simply complete the Committee Volunteer Form on the IS website. If you wish to serve as a committee secretary, send me an email to express your interest after you have completed the Committee Volunteer Form. To receive more information about the IS committee appointment process, please feel free to contact me at the e-mail address below.

I am looking forward to working with you!

Kirsten Feist, 2023-2024 Vice-Chair,
