Committees

Current members of ARLIS/NA are eligible to serve on any committee. Each committee is composed of one chair, six members, and an executive board liaison. Committee chairs and members begin and end their service at the end of the ARLIS/NA membership meeting held at the society’s annual conference. In most cases, members serve one-year terms for a maximum of three consecutive years. However, some committees may allow members to exceed the three-year term limit. Chairs serve one-year terms for a maximum of two consecutive years. The maximum continuous term as member and as chair is five years. Committees typically hold virtual meetings once a month to work on projects and initiatives and hold a business meeting at the annual conference. Participation as a member does not require attending the membership meeting at the annual conference.

If you are interested in volunteering to serve on one of these committees, please complete the volunteer form between October 1 and October 31, 2018.
