YALSA is lucky to have so many active involved members in our association. If you are looking for a way to get even more involved, you can volunteer for an ALA committee (These are different from YALSA committees and appointments to these committees are not made by YALSA.) The online form is now available at:’ http://cs.ala.org/alacommittees/volunteer.html The form allows members to select a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of committees to volunteer for.’ You will be asked to provide the following information:
- on their past and current ALA service to committees, offices and as an Emerging Leader or Spectrum Scholar
- ALA participation on committees, offices, and related activities
- State, regional, and other library associations participation (committees, offices, activities, including dates
- Number of years as ALA member
The deadline for completing the online committee volunteer form is December 5, 2008.
The form also includes a URL link to the ALA-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) online committee volunteer form.
