Happily, my appointments taskforce and I are swimming in applications for this fall’s selection and award committees as well as several important taskforces. For those of you that submitted a form, thank you for being willing to share your time and expertise with YALSA in this way.
Throughout the month, we’ll be filling slots with an eye toward creating strong and diverse committees. We hope to have all our work completed by the end of the October.
‘ And please remember, if we are unable to place you at this time or if you weren’t able to meet the September 30th deadline for these committees, there are a myriad of ways to be an engaged member in YALSA including:
- Tweet-Ups and E-Chats
- Participating in virtual Process Committees
- Nominating titles for a Selection List or Award
- Heading to St. Louis for the YA Literature Symposium!
‘ Of course, these aren’t your only options. For more information and ideas, take a few minutes to watch a Get Involved webinar.
