Interested in joining the ALIA Sydney Committee for 2018?

ALIA Sydney is calling out for new members for 2018.

ALIA Sydney is currently looking for new committee members to join our team. On this Committee you will have the chance to develop skills in event and project management, and make vital professional connections -- plus you can have a lot of fun along the way! Because we cover a geographical area rather than a particular industry sector, our Committee works best when we have representation from many different organisations, and members in different stages of their career. Positions include Co-Ordinator, Treasurer, Secretary, Social Media Officer, and Event Officer. We welcome EOIs from all corners of the industry, including students.

ALIA Sydney presents a selection of formal and informal professional development events to encourage discussion and critical engagement, and create networking opportunities across the library and information sector in Sydney and beyond. The ALIA Sydney committee is a group of vibrant and committed volunteers who make it all happen. We are looking forward to a much more active 2018 and would like to at least double our Committee size.

Expressions of Interest (EOIs) should be received by COB Thursday 30 November 2017 . EOIs should briefly introduce yourself and why you are interested in joining the Committee. All EOIs and any questions should be directed to the current ALIA Sydney Co-Ordinator, Lauren Castan at

The interested person should:

·         Be, or be willing to become, a current member of ALIA.
·         Have an active interest in professional development with the Library & Information Sector.
·         Maintain an active awareness of new issues and developments within the sector. 
·         Have strong communication and collaboration skills.
.     Be able to assist with the organisation and running of some events each year.
.     Attend regular meetings with the Committee.
