Just ten days left to the deadline for volunteering for a YALSA process committee, jury, advisory board, or task force! Don’t forget to take a few minutes to read the extensive list of committees that you can apply for, and then fill out the volunteer form by January 31.’ Remember, these are almost all 100% virtual–conference attendance not required. But they are all extremely important in terms of accomplishing all the work that YALSA does over the course of the year. Committee appointments will be made in February and March, and terms will begin July 1. You need to fill out a new form each year, so don’t put it off–do it now.
