Composition

  • Composition includes a Chair, Vice-chair, and representatives from ULS, CLS, CJCLS, Communities of Practice Assembly, and Chapters Council. Board Liaison is always ACRL Vice-President/President-Elect.
  • Since it is important that the vice-chair/chair be knowledgeable about the responsibilities and concerns of the committee, it is suggested that the committee vice-chair/chair be selected from the existing committee membership.

Origin

The Leadership Recruitment and Nomination Committee was created by the ACRL Board of Directors.

Get Involved
