YALSA is currently seeking a Board Advocate for the 2023-24 term.  This position will be held by someone who is not yet a YALSA member, but advocates for teens in their role working for an institution, a non-profit, a for-profit venture, or as a volunteer, among other capacities. Current or former employment in a library is neither required nor is it a disqualification; however, the intent is to encourage a person with a perspective outside the library realm to join the Board. 

This position is an ex-officio position, which means it is a non-voting position, but is otherwise expected to participate in board work and projects, and attend board meetings. This ex-officio Board member will serve a 1-year term, with the potential to renew for a second 1-year term. No prior library experience or familiarity with libraries or YALSA is required for this position.

If you are interested in applying, or know of an excellent candidate for this position, please follow this link to complete the application/nomination form.

When you have completed the form, please be sure to email YALSA President-Elect, Colleen Seisser, to expedite the processing of the application.
