Committee appointments are made by the ULS vice-chair for the year they will serve as chair. Appointments typically last for two years.
Current committee members whose terms conclude at that year’s ALA Annual Conference should submit a new volunteer form if they wish to be considered for re-appointment.
Most committee appointment offers will be sent in April and May.
Appointments begin after that year’s ALA Annual Conference.
For more information about ULS committee appointments, please contact the current vice-chair: http://www.ala.org/acrl/aboutacrl/directoryofleadership/sections.
