The LLAMA committee volunteer form for section and division-level appointments is now open!Â Click hereÂ for available opportunities and to volunteer. The deadline to volunteer is May 31, and terms begin July 1, 2013.
Your committee service will not only allow you to impact our profession, but will help you develop leadership skills while building a professional network of colleagues. There are volunteer opportunities available throughout LLAMA, including both division and section committees. Division level committees support the work of the entire division and are critical to helping us meet our membersâ€™ needs. Section level committees are more focused and are the key to our high quality programming, both online and at conferences. These seven specialized sections are:
Â·Â Â Â Buildings and Equipment (BES)
Â·Â Â Â Fundraising and Financial Development (FRFDS)
Â·Â Â Â Human Resources (HRS)
Â·Â Â Â Library Organization and Management (LOMS)
Â·Â Â Â Measurement, Assessment, and Evaluation (MAES)
Â·Â Â Â Public Relations and Marketing (PRMS)
Â·Â Â Â Systems and Services (SASS)

If you are currently on a committee with a term ending June 30, and you would like to be re-appointed, please let your committee chair know.
LLAMA is committed to meeting the needs of our members and we need your talent and ideas. I encourage you or a colleague to volunteer to be part of our leadership network in 2013 and beyond. Please let me know if you have any questions, and THANKS!
