Call for Volunteers: IACRL Committees

(via Dan Matthews, IACRL Vice-President/President-Elect)

Join an IACRL committee! IACRL is seeking members for all committees. This year, we are specifically in need of members to serve on the Membership Committee and to chair various committees. Serving on a committee is a great way to meet other Illinois academic library workers and donate time to the community.

To get involved, fill out the Committee Interest Form.

Committee members are appointed for three-year terms, and the time commitment is around 1-2 hours per month, sometimes less. Chairs are appointed for one-year terms and can expect a time commitment around 2-3 hours per month.

The committee descriptions are below.

Conference and Continuing Education Committee

The committee shall provide workshops, conferences, symposium, classes and other educational experiences for members.

Membership Committee

The committee shall actively recruit and promote membership engagement and retention in IACRL. The committee shall work with the Vice President/President Elect to identify volunteers to serve on committees.

Communications Committee

The committee shall publish a newsletter at least twice a year (during the Fall and Spring). The general and managing editors shall be elected by the committee. The committee shall be responsible for the maintenance of the IACRL web site.

Awards Committee

The committee shall be responsible for the award of Illinois Academic Librarian of the Year and for any other awards the association deems appropriate. The committee shall submit award decisions to the Executive Committee.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

The committee works to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within Illinois academic libraries.

We hope that you’ll get involved! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Dan Matthews, IACRL Vice-President/President-Elect, at matthewsd29@morainevalley.edu.
