ALA Volunteer Opportunities

ALA is working to streamline its volunteer selection process and, as a result, no longer conducts robust due diligence research on committee and/or project team applicants. Going forward, only applicant interviews will be conducted. The result of this change is that a much shorter timeline is needed for the process.

Note: Service on ALA committees and/or project teams is open to ALA members, business partners or other interested parties whose knowledge, skills, and expertise are deemed useful to a specific project.
