Committee Procedures

LES book

Section members who wish to volunteer for a committee are encouraged to submit an ACRL online volunteer form.

To serve on any committee within the Association of College and Research Libraries, you must be a member of the Association. For section committees, you must also be a member of the section. It is American Library Association policy that no member of ALA may serve simultaneously on more than three committees, including division and section committees, unless membership is ex-officio. It is also ALA policy that committee members are to attend the meetings of the committee at both the Midwinter Meeting and the Annual Conference of the Association. Neither ALA nor ACRL provides funds for committee members to attend these meetings.

If you have accepted an appointment on a LES Section Committee, you should receive an ACRL Appointment Acceptance Form from your committee chair or the LES Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect. Complete the form and send it to the LES Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect.

If you are serving as chair of a LES Section committee, you should prepare a summary of the committee meeting(s) upon completion of the last committee meeting at both the Midwinter and Annual conferences of ALA.  You should use the ACRL Measuring Success form for this purpose.  Be sure to also send a copy of your meeting summary to the LES Secretary.
