Composition

The Continuing Education Committee consists of 16 members. Committee members serve as liaison representatives to ALCTS sections.

Origin

Established in 2009 at the request of the ALCTS Board of Directors. The CE committee supersedes the ALCTS Education Committee, which was disbanded in 2009. The change was made in order to emphasize the importance of continuing education for the association.

Get Involved

ALCTS values committed and active committee members. Qualified members are welcome to volunteer to serve on the Continuing Education committee. Committee members must have an interest in the work of the committee and be able to work between meetings via e-mail and ALA Connect.
