Volunteer for ALA Committees

The online volunteer form for appointments to the 2009-2010 ALA and Council committees is now available. The form allows ALA members to submit 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of committees for potential appointment. The ALA Appointments Committee and the ALA Council’s Committee on Committee will consider names submitted for appointment. The deadline for completing the online committee volunteer form is December 5, 2008.

Volunteers are asked to provide the following information:

  • Past and current ALA service to committees, offices, and related activities such as Emerging Leader or Spectrum Scholar participation
  • Education
  • State, regional, and other library associations participation (committees, offices, activities, including dates)
  • Number of years as ALA member

Volunteering for committees does not carry over across years. Members must complete the volunteer form again this year even if it was submitted for 2008-2009 appointments.

Additional information about ALA committees, including charges, is available on the ALA website.
