The LITA Board of Directors establishes committees to help manage or address particular concerns of the division. Each committee is composed of at leasty three LITA members who serve two year terms. To encourage broad participation, interns may be appointed to committees for a one-year term. Terms commence and terminate at the adjournment of ALA Annual Conferences. A board member often serves as liaison to a committee to ensure communication between the board and committee.
