Looking for New Committee Members for 2019

ALIA Sydney is looking for new committee members to join our team. On this committee you will have the chance to develop skills in event 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.

ALIA Sydney presents professional development and social 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 volunteers who make it all happen.

Expressions of Interest (EOIs) should be received by COB Friday 8 February 2019. EOIs should briefly introduce yourself and why you are interested in joining the Committee. All EOIs and any questions should be directed to the outgoing ALIA Sydney Convenor, Lauren Castan at aliasydneygroup@gmail.com

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 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.
