Responsibilities of Members

As a member, chair or intern on a committee, you will be expected to participate and perform responsibilities specific to that committee. These expectations should have been shared at the time the committee appointment is offered to you. If you have any questions about the responsibilities for a particular committee, you are always welcome to reach out to the appointing officer, committee chair, or the ALCTS Office. We also know situations come up during the course of a committee appointment, so if you have concerns about being able to participate after you are appointed, please contact the committee chair about your situation. Every case is different, so we highly encourage all committee members to talk to their chairs in case of any questions about responsibilities. Committee chairs will also reach out to individuals to assess individual situations.
