Committees

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.

Volunteering

Every spring, LITA’s president-elect appoints members to committees. All LITA members are urged to apply. We need the talent and skill of dedicated professionals like you. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on a committee, please go to the committee volunteer form (ALA login required).
