Did you see that the AALL Call for Committee Volunteers is now open?

If you have ever thought about volunteering, I want to urge you to do so. I have volunteered on several committees and found the work to be fun, challenging and almost always helped me in my career. Often committee work gave me an opportunity to lead and demonstrate my capabilities when perhaps my work position did not offer managerial responsibilities. Committee work introduced me to librarians in other types of libraries, many of whom I am friends with still. Explore the various committees and select those that interest you. Complete the volunteer form and do take section 8 seriously. Explain why you are interested in that specific committee (or committees). If you have a passion for vendor relations, share it! The association needs volunteers from all regions and all types of libraries. If you tried before and did not get appointed, please try again. This might be your lucky year!

Call for Committee Volunteers Now Open

Become an active member of our Association by volunteering for an AALL committee. Our committees help to implement AALL’s strategic directions. AALL thrives because our members get involved, and you benefit from the professional experience and collegiality of committee membership. You will have the opportunity to meet AALL members from all types of law libraries and from all parts of the country.

There are 24 standing committees to choose from. The committees focus on either policy issues or process functions. Please review the charges and other committee information available on the committee pages of AALLNET. These pages provide the charge of each committee, as well as an overview of the work involved, anticipated time commitment, and any suggested member qualifications.

AALL benefits when a variety of perspectives are represented on committees. Newer members, experienced members, and members from all types of libraries and functions are encouraged to apply. Your work provides the energy to move AALL forward!

Please complete and submit the AALL Committee Volunteer Form by February 14.
