Want to get involved in YALSA? Don’t have lots of time? Here’s the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.
YALSA has a two short-term member volunteer opportunities available right now!
We are looking for:
- Three to five members to serve on a virtual taskforce charged with developing a new member Innovation Award. This award will recognize a member who has embraced YALSA’s vision for teen services. The award proposal will be due to the Board for review at our June 2018 meeting.
- Three to five members to serve on a virtual taskforce charged with developing a new Mid-Career Travel Stipend to be used by a YALSA member who expresses need and has not had the opportunity to attend an ALA Annual Conference or YALSA Symposium for five years. The stipend proposal will be due to the Board for review at our June 2018 meeting.
These are two great ways to get involved in the work of YALSA without having to attend in-person meetings or make a lengthy commitment. Plus, you’ll be helping to craft proposals for awards that will directly benefit members.
If you are interested in volunteering for either of these short-term volunteer opportunities, please fill out the Committee Volunteer Form
If you have any questions, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
