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

ARLIS/NA New England is seeking nominations (including self-nominations) for several officers on the Chapter’s Executive Committee to begin in January 2021. Open positions are: 

  • 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. 
  • Secretary (2 years)The secretary is responsible for Chapter documents, including meeting minutes, and assists with the general functions of the committee.
  • Public Relations & Web Support (2 years)The Public Relations & Web Support officer maintains the Chapter website and social media accounts, coordinates activities to build membership, and assists with the general functions of the committee. 

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 2021 ARLIS/NA membership with the possibility of continuing this in 2022. We’re grateful to our colleagues in the New York Chapter for this idea.

Nominations (including self-nominations) are due by October 30, 2020 to arlisna.newengland@gmail.com
