Happy Monday, amazing YALSA members!
Can you believe it's already near the end of February?
For those who've made New Year's resolutions to be more involved in the profession, it's not too late!
The deadline to apply to join a YALSA strategic committee, jury, or taskforce is this Sunday, March 1st!
Strategic committees are a great way to get involved with YALSA, as they are virtual committees. Or, if you are a new member and looking to try committee work for the first time, the strategic committees are a great way to learn about YALSA, connect with teen service professionals from around the country, and help you develop your virtual work skills and teen expertise. So, if travel and conference attendance aren't an option for you this year, please take a minute to fill out the volunteer form here and send it in before March 1st!
My Appointments Taskforce and I will begin the process to fill the over 200 open positions that help YALSA accomplish the work of the strategic plan and the work that moves the association and members forward immediately after March 1st, so please be sure to get your application in before then.
I strongly encourage all YALSA members to apply - it is an easy and great way to get more involved in this amazing association, especially if you are interested in joining a YALSA selection or award committee in the future.
Please feel free to contact me at candice.yalsa (at) gmail.com if you have any questions!
