United for Libraries Committees

United for Libraries members may serve on a variety of division level committees. If you would like to serve on a committee, please email sreed@ala.org to express your interest. Members are asked each year to express interest in committees on which they would like to serve. The United for Libraries Vice-President/President-Elect selects committee members and chairpersons in mid-May each year, with terms of service July 1-June 30.

United for Libraries group members are not ALA members, and therefore cannot serve on committees. If you are currently an United for Libraries group member and wish to purchase ALA/United for Libraries membership, please call (800) 545-2433, ext. 2161, or email united@ala.org.
