Expand Your Network, Share Your Expertise, Learn New Skills!

Call for Volunteers

Join the ALA Silicon Valley Board of Directors and Committees

We are opening our annual call for nominations for the 2017-2018 Board of Directors. 

This is an outstanding opportunity to expand your professional network, share your expertise and ideas, learn new skills, and help take your Chapter to the next level! Those who have served in the past have said that they get much more out of their membership and career development when actively volunteering in the ALA Silicon Valley Chapter. The strong relationships you develop are an additional wonderful benefit.

The Nominating Committee is now taking nominations for the following Board-level positions:

  • President-Elect
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Director - Membership
  • Director - Professional Development
  • Director - Communications
  • Director - Website

The term of office officially begins March 1, 2017 through February 28, 2018, with meetings and communications prior to the official beginning of the term to provide continuity of initiatives and smooth transition. Position descriptions can be found in the Member Area1 of the website.

The Board meets once a month and attends chapter activities, including seminars, networking events, community outreach, and conferences.

If you are interested in serving on the board in any of the above positions or would like to nominate someone, please contact our Nominating Committee Member-at-Large, Jean Newfield at jnewfield@whitecase.com or 650.213.0328.

If you cannot serve in a Board-level position, please ask about joining a committee, helping with a project during the year, volunteer to host a meeting, offer ideas for seminar topics, participate in the member discussion group, or attend our group activities and seminars.

Nominations will be accepted until 5 pm on Monday, January 9, 2016.
