Nominate yourself or a colleague to serve on the 2022 VLA Executive Committee (Deadline April 9)

Every year, the VLA Executive Committee seeks new candidates for open positions on the Executive Committee, and the entire membership votes on those candidates. This year we are seeking candidates for the three positions listed below, so please nominate a colleague or yourself!

  • VP/President-Elect (3 years) [Public or Special Library]
  • Second VP (2 years) [Public or Special Library]
  • Treasurer (2 years) [Academic or Special Library]

To learn about the duties and responsibilities, please see page 15 of the VLA Manual, listed here. In order to keep the Executive Committee balanced between different types of libraries, we try to alternate for each officer position.
