Volunteer Opportunity! GLBTRT Representatives


The Round Table is looking for volunteers to be the GLBTRT representatives to the following groups.  Please email me at jen@jenw.net if you are interested in this opportunity.  Let me know what you are interested in, your involvement in those groups, and resume, if relevant.

American Association of School Librarians (AASL)
Association of Library Service to Children (ALSC)
Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF)*
Intellectual Freedom Round Table (IFRT)
Legislation Assembly (ALA Committee on Legislation)*
New Members Round Table (NMRT)
Public Library Association (PLA)
Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRST)
Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA)

*Please note that the Freedom to Read Foundation and Legislation Assembly both require Midwinter and Annual attendance.

The representative:

  • serves a one or two year term;
  • in many cases, will serve as the representative to both the GLBTRT and the other group;
  • monitors both group’s email lists, newsletters, blogs, and social media for meetings, invitations, announcements, events, and programs;
  • attends necessary meetings at Midwinter and Annual of both groups;
  • relays information back and forth between both groups’ email lists;
  • gathers feedback from GLBTRT membership and/or board when needed using the membership email list;
  • engages with GLBTRT committees and chairs when needed; and
  • submits reports to the board soon after Midwinter and Annual using these reporting guidelines.
