The Children's Literature Lecture Award Committee consists of four members appointed from the ALSC membership at large, serving 2-year terms and led by the committee chair (Chair + 4). This committee functions virtually.
Established in 1971 as the (May Hill) Arbuthnot Honor Lecture Award Committee, and updated in 2020 to the Children's Literature Lecture Award Committee at the request of the ALSC Board of Directors.
Vital professional associations are the result of engaged and committed member leaders! If you are interested in serving ALSC on a committee, please read and complete the online volunteer form.
- Process committees (non-award committees) are appointed in early spring (Jan-May)
- Award and evaluation committees are appointed in early fall (July-Oct)
- Replacement positions pop up and are filled throughout the year (ongoing)
The Vice-President/President-Elect begins making his/her process committee appointments in February/March. In August/September, after being seated as President, he/she will then begin filling fall appointments.
