A message from RUSA’s President Elect, Joe Thompson:
Hello RUSA members!
I’d like to encourage you to volunteer for ALA Committees before the volunteer form closes for these on November 1, 2013. Committee appointments will be finalized at the 2014 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia, and notifications will be sent out in the spring. Terms begin July 1, 2014. Visit the ALA and Council Committees webpage for committee descriptions: http://www.ala.org/groups/committees/ala. For technical assistance or for more information on the ALA-level committee appointments process, you may contact Kerri Price at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To volunteer, go to: http://www.ala.org/CFApps/Committee/volunteerform/volunteerform.cfm
Of course I’d also like to see you volunteer for RUSA! You do have a bit more time to get your name submitted for these however. March 1, 2014 is the planned closing date to volunteer for our RUSA, BRASS, CODES, History, MARS, RSS, and STARS committees. There’s no reason to put it off though, so volunteer today! Keep in mind that attendance at ALA Midwinter may not be required for some committees and sections. Feel free to contact the committee chair, section chair, or me if you have any questions about attendance. Links to RUSA division-level and section committees can be found at http://www.ala.org/rusa/contact/rosters. Access the volunteer form using the same URL provided above. The menu to select section-level committees is located at the bottom of RUSA Committee Volunteer Form.
RUSA is the foremost organization of reference and information professionals who make the connections between people and the information sources, services, and collection materials they need. Learn more about the association at www.ala.org/rusa.
Thanks for supporting your associations!
