Get Involved with YALSA – Short-term work

Have you wanted to get involved in YALSA but don’t know where to start? Are you a committee pro but don’t have the time to commit to a full-year term? Are you a YALSA member who likes a shorter-term volunteer opportunity?

Member award juries and short-term groups may be just what you are looking for! Juries work for just 3 months, and short-term groups work for 6 months.  What does a jury do?  They vet applications for a particular member grant or award and choose a winner.  Short term groups focus on completing a specific job.

Juries (3-month appointment, starting Nov. 1; 4-month appointment for chairs, starting Oct. 1)

Short Term Groups

Other:

The jury and short-term group volunteer window is open until August 1. Use this form to volunteer! If you have been appointed to a group you will receive an official invitation from YALSA’s Membership Marketing Manager, Letitia Smith, some time in Sept.  You will not hear anything from YALSA in Aug.  If invited to serve, accept your place on the group by responding to the email and be ready to jump in when you hear from the chair.

Thanks for all the time and talent you volunteer to YALSA!  If you’re looking for other ways to get involved, visit the YALSA web site for more opportunities!

If you have questions, feel free to get in touch with me (todd.yalsa@gmail.com).

Todd Krueger,  YALSA President-Elect
