Due to a resignation from the RAILS Board, we have an opening for an at-large seat for a term ending on June 30, 2024. Any individual representing a RAILS academic, public, school, or specialized library is eligible to self-nominate for this seat by Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at 5:00 PM CDT.
RAILS is committed to modeling best practices in equity, diversity, and inclusion, as reflected in our new strategic plan. For this reason, we are especially looking for candidates that reflect the diversity of the RAILS membership in terms of race, ethnicity, age, geographic location, staff position, and other factors. An MLIS/MLS is not required.
The successful candidate will be asked to actively participate in 11 board meetings per year, either in person at a RAILS location or via Zoom (depending on current pandemic restrictions). See the RAILS Board Member Job Description for more information on duties and requirements.
If you would like to work with a committed team of colleagues to help shape the future of a member-driven, vibrant library system, please complete this form by February 23. The RAILS Board will choose candidates to interview and make a selection.
