Some of you may remember a similar call for volunteers from this summer
-- there is still space on the VRT Membership Committee for enthusiastic
individuals who are looking to promote media librarianship and the VRT!
We're seeking one or two committee members for the VRT Membership
Committee, which is responsible for promoting the VRT and other outreach
activities. Here's some info about the committee from our bylaws:
A. *Membership*-The Membership Committee shall consist of at least three
(3) members, including the chair. The term of service shall be two (2)
years. It shall be responsible for promoting membership in the Round
Table and for outreach activities with other appropriate professional
As Membership Chair, there are a few initiatives I'm hoping the
committee can work on in the coming year (and I'm certainly open to and
eager for more ideas). These include: jump-starting a mentorship
program for people who are new to or are interested in becoming media
librarians, developing a membership survey to gather ideas for future
initiatives, and coming up with some new giveaway items to promote VRT
(a good opportunity for those with a creative streak!). Some of the
"traditional" Membership Committee duties include maintaining membership
statistics, sending out welcome letters to new members, organizing the
VRT booth at Annual, promoting membership within and outside of ALA
(i.e. speaking at other group's programs), etc.
If you're interested in serving, drop me an email (and please include a
few lines about why you're interested, as well as whether or not you
attend ALA meetings) at firstname.lastname@example.org .
