SCTPG is seeking nominations

SCTPG is seeking nominations to run for a board member:

Who we are:
SCTPG is the local affiliate of ALA’s Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS). Established in April 1959, SCTPG provides continuing education and networking opportunities to keep technical services library staff abreast with the latest issues and developments in the profession. Find out more about the group, including its by-laws and event programming, on this website.

The positions:

The President is an elected position to be held from July 2018 to July 2019, becoming the Past President from July 2019 to July 2020. Through this time, s/he is responsible for board meetings, liaising with ALCTS, running elections, introducing speakers at workshops, and related duties.

The Vice-President/President-Elect is an elected position to be held from July 2018 to July 2019, becoming President from July 2019 to July 2020, and Past President from July 2020 to July 2021. During the first year, s/he attends board meetings and participates in the management of SCTPG in preparation to becoming President. In the second year s/he assumes the duties of the President and, in the third year, as the Past-President, provides assistance to the President and President-Elect.

Secretary/Treasurer is an elected position to be held for two years, from July 2018 to July 2020. This position is responsible for attending and taking minutes at board meetings, filing records, and managing the finances of SCTPG.

Please consider running for office or nominating one of your colleagues. We encourage librarians and paraprofessionals from all types of libraries to run, including those new to the profession or SCTPG. In the past few years SCTPG has been actively involved in RDA training and workshops, and there are so many other wonderful aspects of technical services to explore. So if you work in acquisitions, serials, digital collections, processing, metadata, authority work, or any other aspect of TS, we encourage you to get involved! In addition to hosting several events a year, the SCTPG board meets in person several times per year, and performs much of its business virtually via conference calls and over email.

Kind regards,
Sarah Wallbank
