The Web Coordinating Committee consists of about 15 people appointed from LITA membership, serving two year terms and led by the committee chair.
The committee was established in coordinate the web presence of LITA. Beginning in 2010 the committee was reorganized. Members participate in either the Technology Subcommittee or the Communication Subcommittee. The Technology Subcommittee provides technical support for the Communications Subcommittee and for other LITA committees as requested and appropriate-- supporting servers, maintaining versioning, protecting the Sandbox server, create instructions, best practices, make recommendations for tools or plugins for the LITA website, etc. The Communications subcommittee will be charged with coordinating a coherent LITA web presence across all channels and tools and with seeing that members use the channels and tools are used fully and appropriately. The committee will set standards for communication (organization work vs. marketing vs. peer to peer communication), put these standards together, and ask the LITA board for support in getting everyone on board.
LITA values committed and active committee members. Qualified members are welcome to volunteer to serve on this committee. Committee members must have an interest in the work of the committee, be able to participate in Committee meetings when scheduled, e.g., Annual Conferences, Midwinter Meetings, or other times of the year as needed and, be able to contribute to the activities of the committee.
Express your interest in serving on this or other committees by filling out the application form. Generally, appointments take place once a year, during the spring. Committee service usually begins following Annual Conference, about July 1, for two year terms. Exceptions to this include the LITA National Forum Planning Committee (18 months before the Forum through the December after the Forum), the Nominating Committee (18 months before the election through the election) and, the Awards and Scholarships committees (one year terms).
