Committee Volunteers Needed!

  • Learn about the BRASS Committees
  • Go to RUSA's volunteer page and login to ALA
  • Select RUSA from the dropdown menu
  • Complete the form about yourself and your current ALA responsibilities
  • Select RUSA_BRASS from the second drop down menu

You do not necessarily need to travel to conferences to volunteer. While some committees must meet in-person, many have virtual assignments, and some do all their work online. Most committee assignments last two years and begin and end after ALA Annual conference.  Thank you!  :)
