SLA Volunteers are the Life of our Organization.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Special Libraries Association (SLA). The Call for Volunteers will be open until October 31st, 2019.
There are three different types of volunteer opportunities for which you can apply:
1. Advisory Council and/or Committee (1–3 year terms with regular meetings throughout each year)
2. Unit (Chapter/Division/Caucus)
3. Micro-Volunteering (smaller, short-term opportunities including writing, speaking, sharing resources, and more)

SLA members are welcome to express interest in as many volunteer positions as you like. Please note that SLA members will not be appointed to more than one SLA  Advisory Council/Committee.
All appointed volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend SLA's 2020 Leadership Symposium January 18-20th, 2020. The 2020 SLA Leadership Symposium will take place at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner in the Washington DC metro area, and will provide SLA members relevant, quality educational leadership training, in conjunction with a unit leader training.

· Saturday will include registration and a welcome reception.

· Sunday will feature a dynamic agenda of leadership-focused professional development training.

· Monday is an engaging schedule of volunteer and unit leader training for SLA volunteers. 

Once the survey closes, your application will be considered in the following ways:
1. If you apply for a Committee and/or Advisory Council, you will be notified by mid-November with your placement.
2. If you apply to volunteer with your unit(s), your application will be given to your unit leader(s), who will follow up with you regarding the status of that appointment.
3. If you apply for a micro-volunteering opportunity, you will be contacted by SLA headquarters to get started.
Again, thank you for your interest in volunteering, and we look forward to partnering with you in 2020 and beyond!
