ACRL New Member Forum: Getting Involved in ACRL

New to ACRL and curious about the ACRL committee appointment process? It’s not too late to volunteer to serve on a ACRL committee. The ACRL Membership Committee invites new ACRL members, and those who are interested in getting involved in ACRL to participate in a free online forum about the many volunteer opportunities (in sections, interest groups, discussion groups, and division-level committees). We will explain how the entire appointment process works. This will be an interactive session, so bring your questions for our panelists including Chase Ollis, ACRL Program Coordinator for Member Services; Erin Ellis, Chair of theACRL Leadership and Recruitment Committee; and Ellysa Cahoy, Chair of the ACRL Instruction Section.

The forum will be held from 9:30-10:30 am CST on Thursday, February 4. Attendees will need a USB headset (and an Internet connection) to utilize the VoIP feature. We recommend that all attendees have headsets with microphones available, and have a current version of Flash player installed. No advance registration or sign-up is required, just enter the Adobe Connect meeting room to participate in the forum.
