ALSC Governance

The Association for Library Service to Children is governed by a 13-member Board elected by the membership, which includes the President, Vice President/President-Elect, Immediate Past President, Fiscal Officer, Councilor, and eight Directors. The five officers serve as the division's Executive Committee. The ALSC Executive Director serves ex-officio on the Executive Committee and the Board.

The Board meets twice annually, at ALA's Annual Conference in June and Midwinter Meeting in January. The Board also conducts business and votes electronically in between meetings.

To help facilitate committee work, committees are organized into eight Priority Groups, represented by Priority Group Consultants who serve as resources, mentors, and liaisons between committee chairs and the ALSC Board.
