GameRT Committees

The GameRT has a number of committees that work to complete a variety of tasks and manage different programs that fall under the Round Table. Committees are a great way to get involved and become a more active member of both the GameRT, ALA, and beyond. There are many opportunities to participate even if you are unable to attend every conference. To get started, you can fill out the GameRT Interest Form, or contact one of the board members via ALA Connect
