ALA Council Committees/ALA Committees

A few ALA members have contacted me over the past several days, requesting appointments to ALA Committees and ALA Council Committees. Here's just a note about what you might do if you are interested in volunteering for similar service.

James Rettig, ALA President-Elect, will chair the ALA Committee on Committees (elected from Council) and the ALA Committee on Appointments (President-Elects of the ALA Divisions). Later this summer Jim will broadly broadcast a call, inviting members to submit online applications to serve on these committees. At that time you can click on a URL which will lead you to an online application. That application will allow you to enter information about yourself and indicate your committees of preference. Jim will work with the committees and will develop slates of appointments by the 2008 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia. Appointments will be made between February and April 2008.

Thanks for your interest in serving!
