The LITA Board of Directors establishes committees to help manage or address particular concerns of the division. Each committee is composed of at least three LITA members who serve two year terms. To encourage broad participation, interns may be appointed to committees for a one-year term. Terms commence and terminate at the adjournment of ALA Annual Conferences. A Board member often serves as liaison to a committee to ensure communication between the board and committee.



Every spring, LITA’s President-elect appoints members to committees that have been established by the LITA Board to help manage Division activities.

Committee Chairs Coordinator

The 2019-21 Committee Chairs Coordinator is Kelly Sattler.

LITA Bylaws, Article VII: Committees and Representatives, Section 8 stipulates that the Committee Chairs Coordinator will serve as a resource for the chairs of LITA committees and interest groups.  The Coordinator facilitates communication between the leaders of these groups through administering periodic meetings and the LITA Leaders group in LITA Connect.
