Call for members for the LLAMA Diversity Task Force

As part of LLAMA’s restructuring which began with the adoption of new bylaws earlier this year, I am forming a special task force to assess diversity issues and opportunities within LLAMA. The LLAMA Diversity Task Force is charged to explore opportunities for strengthening diversity focus within LLAMA and avenues for recruiting LLAMA members from diverse populations of all types. The Task Force will begin work in November 2010 and will submit its report and recommendations to the LLAMA Board of Directors before annual conference 2011. Much of the Task Force’s work will be done virtually so conference attendance is not necessarily a requirement for participation.

If you are interested in serving on the LLAMA Diversity Task Force, please send your name, address, contact information and a brief statement of your interest and any related experience to Please also indicate if you will be attending the 2011 ALA midwinter meeting. The deadline for expressions of interest is Wednesday, October 27.
