ACRL Washington State Chapter
2017 call for nominations
Looking for a way to increase your involvement in the academic and research library community? Have great ideas for conference programming, professional development, and networking? Want to work with a great group of librarians and advance the visibility and viability of academic and research librarians in Washington state?
The Washington State chapter of ACRL is soliciting candidates for its board of directors! Whether you’re passionate about making a difference in your regional community or looking for a stepping stone to service on the national level, serving on the ACRL-WA board is a great way to meet professional colleagues, exercise and develop your leadership skills, and learn about the inner workings of the state chapter and the national organization.
Candidacies are currently open for the following positions:
Vice president/president-elect: one-year term, serving as a voting member of the board. After one year, the president-elect then assumes the presidency, followed by one year of service as past president. (Yes, that’s a total of three years.) Must be a member of both ACRL-WA and ACRL National.
Secretary: two-year term, serving as a voting member of the board. Prepare minutes for all board and membership meetings, keep archival copies, and submit to the chapter archives. Must be a member of ACRL-WA.
Member-at-large: two-year term, serving as a voting member of the board. Run the annual membership drive and occasional outreach on behalf of the chapter. You also get to administer the annual conference scholarships, which is a lot of fun! Must be a member of ACRL-WA.
To submit a nomination, please fill out the nomination form, including a statement of no more than 500 words supporting your candidacy. Deadline: Friday, March 3rd.
