The committee will be chaired by the immediate past-president of ACRL; have two members, with staggered terms, representing each type of library section with the committee members recommended by each section’s vice-chair/chair-elect; and have a member representing Chapters Council. Effort should be made to have geographic distribution across the committee membership.
