The ALA Midwinter Meeting has ended, but the time to focus on YALSA’s work has just begun. The YALSA Board of Directors voted at the Board II meeting to establish a YALSA Board Diversity Taskforce. This taskforce has a charge to analyze the current board recruitment and selection policies, procedures and resources, and recommend improvements in order to bring more ongoing diversity to the YALSA Board.
Chris Shoemaker, YALSA’s President, is seeking members who are willing to serve on this new group. As a virtual group, there are no travel requirements to serve on this taskforce, and the group will conduct its work between March 2015 and June 2016. Find out more about the task force from the board document. If you’re interested in serving, please fill out the volunteer form by no later than March 1st.
