WVLA Academic Division Needs YOU

Call for Nominations!


Are you an enthusiastic and creative academic librarian looking to get more involved in the West Virginia Library Association?  Consider running for office!  The Academic Library Division of WVLA is currently seeking nominations for a Chair-Elect.  This is a two-year commitment beginning in January, 2018.  After serving as Chair-Elect for one year, you will become Chair of the Academic Division.  The Chair is responsible for:

  •  Coordination the Academic Division’s Summer Refresher meeting
  • Assistance with Academic Division programming for the WVLA Annual Meeting in 2019
  • Participating in WVLA Legislative Day (which I hear will be different in 2019, but I know no details at this time)
  • Attendance at quarterly WVLA Executive Board meetings (can Skype if necessary!)
  • Anything else you want to try!

 If you or someone you know might be interested, let us know!  There’s no need for you to check with someone prior to nominating them—the Nominations Committee will consider the individuals you suggest and approach the person to verify interest.  Self-nominations are encouraged!  Please send your candidate names to: [email protected]

 If you have any questions at all, please feel free to give us a call or an email.

 Please send nominations by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8.
