Expand the Influence of School Librarians Within ALA

This is an opportunity to serve the library profession that some of of you might be interested in.  It would be great to see some NC names within these committees! 


Here's an opportunity for you to expand the influence of school librarians within the American Library Association – a key part of the AASL Strategic Plan.  On July 20th, Maureen Sullivan, ALA President-Elect and chair of the Committee on Appointments, began to encourage members to volunteer for ALA committees. AASL needs your voice to represent school library issues and concerns on these committees which help to govern the largest and oldest organization devoted to libraries. It is important that school librarians play an active role! Members can volunteer by filling out the online form.

Serving on an ALA committee is an excellent opportunity to build leadership skills and networking opportunities.  ALA is looking for volunteers for the following committees:
  • Accreditation
  • American Libraries Advisory
  • Awards
  • Budget Analysis and Review
  • Chapter Relations
  • Conference
