Volunteer Needed for Electronic Communications Committee

 

Dear members,

We need one more volunteer to serve a one-year term (January 2024 – December 2024) on the Iowa ACRL Electronic Communications Committee.

The committee is responsible for running the mailing list and maintaining the ILA/ACRL Web site and social media, including FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn. This involves adding new information to the Web site and pushing it out via social media, as needed, updating existing information, deleting or archiving old information, improving the design of the Web pages, and general maintenance of the pages. See the committee’s description on the ILA/ACRL Committee’s page.

The work is generally moderate and spread-out over the year. We work mostly via email, with the occasional virtual meeting when necessary. Conference attendance is optional.

If you’re interested in this important work or want to learn more, please contact me (ellen.neuhaus@uni.edu).

Thank you for your consideration,

Ellen Neuhaus on behalf of the Electronic Communications Committee [Ellen Neuhaus, chair, Eleanor Ball, and Claire Bowling]
