ARSL Elections

Click here for the 2020-21 Elections Form

The Nominating Committee invites all current ARSL members to run for election! If you are seeking leadership experience, looking for a way to expand your library community, and passionate about advocating for rural & small libraries and their workers, we want you! We especially extend this invitation to ARSL members who are people of color, LGBTQIA+, or from other historically underrepresented communities to run for election to serve on the ARSL Board as we grow our association and commit to ideals of anti-racism and equity.

If you have been thinking about getting more involved, now is the time! You would be a great addition to ARSL Leadership. If you know a colleague who would fit the bill, urge them to run! For those who cannot be involved in the board, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer for the association, from committee work to one-time volunteering. To nominate yourself or another ARSL member, please fill out the nomination form and submit a high quality photo by August 11, 2020.
