Join an IACRL Committee

Join an IACRL Committee! IACRL is seeking members for its committees. This year we are specifically in need of members to serve on the Awards, Communication, Conference and Continuing Education, and DEI committees and to chair various committees. Serving on a committee is a great way to meet other Illinois academic library workers and donate time to the community.

Committee members are appointed for three-year terms, and the time commitment is around 1-2 hours per month, sometimes less. Chairs are appointed for one-year terms and can expect a time commitment around 2-3 hours per month.

The committee descriptions are below:

Conference and Continuing Education Committee
The committee shall provide workshops, conferences, symposium, classes and other educational experiences for members.

Membership Committee
The committee shall actively recruit and promote membership engagement and retention in IACRL. The committee shall work with the Vice President/President Elect to identify volunteers to serve on committees.

Communications Committee
The committee shall publish a newsletter at least twice a year (during the Fall and Spring). The general and managing editors shall be elected by the committee. The committee shall be responsible for the maintenance of the IACRL web site.

Awards Committee
The committee shall be responsible for the award of Illinois Academic Librarian of the Year and for any other awards the association deems appropriate. The committee shall submit award decisions to the Executive Committee.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
The committee works to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within Illinois academic libraries.
