To oversee the successful conversion of appropriate ALSC process committees to virtual operation. This oversight will include:
*Identifying tools and best practices in conducting committee work virtually.
*Identifying a forum in which Meta Team members and regular ALSC members post best practices in conducting committee work virtually.
*Determining member-leaders' training needs in virtual committee functioning, including use of electronic tools. Developing and presenting a reusable training (example: webinar) for chairs whose committees are going virtual.
*Working with the SPA survey and in consultation with the PGCs, determining which process committees must remain non-virtual (example: Organization & Bylaws Committee).
*Developing a plan and a timeline for conversion of all non-virtual process committees to virtual operations, unless the committee has been designated as having work requiring in-person meetings.
*Mentoring converting committees through their first year of virtual operation.
The ALSC Metamorphosis Team Task Force consists of six members appointed from the ALSC membership at large and led by the committee chair. (Chair + 5)
Established in 2011 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.
