There’s been a lot of discussion online latelyÂ about how to participate in ALA committees as a virtual member (you canÂ find most of the links via the Improve ALA wiki, which wasÂ created by ALA members). As a result, we’ve started a new page on the Get Involved wiki for ALAÂ committeesÂ with virtual members in order to make it easier to find those pieces of “the work of the Association” that allow for participation without necessarily requiring members toÂ show upÂ in person atÂ two meetings a year. Some may still have physical attendance components, some will be completely virtual, some will be a workable mix of the two.Â Overall, we hope this helps you find a way to contribute that works for you.
Questions about any of the committees? Leave a comment here or use the discussion space on the wiki page. Know of a committee (or other workgroup) that’s not listed? Help us out andÂ and add it to the wiki!
