ACRL Nominations and Policies Audit Task Force


  • Review current ACRL Bylaws and policies, focusing on the ACRL leadership nominations and recruitment process + Board participation requirements, to identify areas that may be impeding efforts to expand dimensions of diversity in the leadership pipeline - including people of color and minoritized groups, individuals in diverse roles within the library profession, and library workers in all types of academic library settings.
  • Identify and evaluate alternatives to current policy, as well as advantages and disadvantages for each alternative, that they may reduce barriers and encourage greater participation.
  • Recommend alternatives based on the evaluation of advantages and disadvantages.
  • Areas related to the appointments process should be considered within scope, albeit not the primary focus, in order to be flagged for future work.
