Call for Nominations: Chapter Officers for ARLIS/NA New England

ARLIS/NA New England is seeking nominations¬†(including self-nominations) for two officers on the Chapter’s Executive Committee to¬†begin in January 2022. Open positions are Vice-Chair/Chair/Past Chair and Treasurer.

  • Vice-Chair/Chair/Past Chair (3 years)This position is a 3 year commitment, with the first year as Vice-Chair assisting the Chair, filling in if the Chair is unable to serve, and assisting with general functions of the committee. The second year, this person will serve as Chair, acting as chief executive officer of the Chapter, planning its activities, and drafting annual reports. In the third year, as Past Chair, they will serve in an advisory role and assist with general functions of the committee. 
  • Treasurer (2 years)This position is responsible for all financial accounts for the Chapter and membership records.   

To qualify for Executive Committee positions, one must be a current member of both ARLIS/NA and the New England Chapter. In response to the current circumstances and in the hopes of encouraging greater participation, if any member is currently unemployed and elected to the executive committee, the Chapter will waive their Chapter dues and sponsor their 2022 ARLIS/NA membership with the possibility of continuing this in 2023. We’re grateful to our colleagues in the New York Chapter for this idea.

Nominations (including self-nominations) are due by October 30, 2021 to arlisna.newengland@gmail.com
