The Nominating Committee consists of two Co-Chairs plus five members appointed from the ALSC membership at large, serving 2-year terms. Members may serve more than once on the Nominating Committee, but not more than three times, and not more than once in five years, except for chairs, who may serve a chair term within five years of a term as a member of this committee.

At least one member of the seven-person committee must have served in an ALSC-elected governance role. This member does not have to serve as a Nominating Committee Co-Chair.


Established in 1967 at the request of the ALSC Board of Directors.
