Awards Committee

The awards committee administers the awards and recognition program of the association annually; publicizes the awards to attract qualified nominees; selects association-wide award winners.  Committee membership is not more than ten personal members from diverse types of library settings.  Members serve a two-year, staggered term.  Chair is appointed by the vice president/president-elect of ILA for one year.  All persons commenting or voting in the ILA awards process will recuse themselves from participating in the process of any award for which they have been nominated or the process of any award for which they have a conflict of interest.
