Submitting an online form communicates your wish to serve and your interest to be in a particular committee of ALA, AASL, ACRL, ALCTS, ASCLA, LITA, LLAMA and PLA. The deadline for completing this form for ALA Committees is December 4, 2009.
About the Form
The online volunteer form collects information about your background, the kind of work you’d like to do, and the names of groups to which you’d like an appointment.
Accessing the Form
Log in to the ALA web site before clicking the link to the form to go directly to the welcome screen. Please Note: you cannot access the form if your ALA membership is not paid up-to-date. If you do not log in, you’ll be taken to the generic ALA login screen before you can proceed to the welcome screen.
Completing the Form
On the welcome screen will be a drop-down box. Depending on your interest, select ALA, AASL, ACRL, ALCTS, ASCLA, LITA, LLAMA or PLA. Clicking “Continue” takes you to the first page of the form. At the bottom of the first page is another selector drop-down for locating the groups for which you want to volunteer. After making your selections, click “Continue” to access a review page to verify your selections.
Clicking “Submit” on the review page enters your form in the database and creates a final receipt page which details your volunteer requests. You may want to print this page for your records.
