CMS Continuing Education Committee
furthers educational efforts in the area of collection management and development librarianship, ranging from library school instruction and practices to all types of continuing education; encourages and coordinates programs, preconferences and institutes; identifies needs and makes recommendations for the content of such educational opportunities; addresses issues related to the education and recruitment of collection management and development librarians; establishes liaisons, as appropriate, between the committee and other groups having similar interests.
The Continuing Education Committee consists of nine members appointed by the CMS Chair Elect. Members serve two-year terms and are led by the chair of the committee.
Established as the Continuing Education subcommittee of Resources Section's Collection Management and Development Committee. In 1991, CMDS established the Continuing Education Committee and Education for Collection Development Committee, which merged in 1997 to form the Education Committee. With the 2010 reorganization of CMDS to CMS, the committee was renamed Continuing Education Committee.
ALCTS values committed and active committee members. Qualified members are welcome to volunteer to serve on the CMS Continuing Education Committee. Members should be enthusiastic about continuing education and willing to share and act on great ideas for new CE content.
