It's That Time of Year!

Are you interested in getting involved with your local chapter of ACRL? We'd love to have you! Board elections are just around the corner, and there are several available positions.

Which positions are available?

You can read more about the Board composition here.

For our Spring 2019 election, available positions include...

  • Member-at-Large (2-year term, 2019-2021)
  • Vice President/President-Elect (3-year term, 2019-2022)
  • Secretary (2-year term, 2019-2021)
  • Communications Manager (3-year term, 2019-2022)
  • Web Manager (special 1-year term, 2019-2020)
Please note that terms begin July 1.

What should I know before nominating myself or a colleague?

  • The Vice President/President-Elect must be a member of ACRL National for the duration of the term. Nominees for this position can become a member of National if they are not yet members.

  • The Communications Manager used to be the Newsletter Editor.
  • The Web Manager used to be an appointed position; however, after the recent changes to our bylaws, it is now an elected position with a 3-year term.
  • The Web Manager position is being posted as a special 1-year term for this election only to get it off-cycle with the Communications Manager position. The next election will post this position as a 3-year term.

How can I nominate myself or a colleague?

You can nominate yourself or someone else by emailing Eli Gandour-Rood at by 5pm on Friday, March 22nd with the name of the nominee and the office for which they are being nominated. 

What is the timeline for elections?

Ballots will be emailed to active ACRL Washington State chapter members on April 1.

Voting ends April 22.

Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
