The Advocacy and Legislation committee consists of two co-chairs plus five members appointed from the ALSC membership at large, serving two-year terms. The co-chairs also serve two-year terms and are appointed in alternating years. The "Everyday Advocacy" member content editor serves as an ex-officio member. (2 co-chairs + 5 + 1)
Established in 1974 at the request of the ALSC Board of Directors.
ALSC and ALA value committed and active committee members. Qualified ALSC members are welcome to volunteer to serve on ALSC's committees. Committee members must have an interest in the work of the committee; be able to attend Annual Conferences and Midwinter Meetings to participate in the meetings and activities of the committee; and be able to work between conferences via e-mail and ALA Connect. Express your interest in serving on this or other ALSC committees by filling out an ALSC committee volunteer form. Depending on the committee, appointments take place either in the spring or fall. Accordingly, committee service begins either following Annual Conference or Midwinter Meeting.
