Call for Steering Committee Members
The Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) Steering Committee is looking for new members! The CLEL Steering Committee consists of 13 members passionate in their belief in the importance of the library's role in promoting early literacy skills for ages birth through five and their caregivers.
The Steering Committee meets once every 3 months, so if the time commitment is nerve-wracking, fear not. We meet in Centennial, but we have remote access for those who are unable to attend the meetings in person. Each member of the Steering Committee serves for a term of three years.
This year, we are looking for 3 new members. These members will serve on the following committees:
Steering Committee co-chair: This person will help lead meetings, take down the minutes, and will rotate into the chair position during the second year of their term.
Communications Committee co-chair: This person will help respond to email, maintain the website, Facebook, and Twitter pages, and will assist with the technical needs of the organization as necessary. This person will rotate into the chair position during the second year of their term.
Conference Committee co-chair: This person will help to plan and execute the annual conference, including finding presenters. This person will rotate into the chair position during the second year of their term.
If you are a gung-ho guerrilla storytime guru, if you wake up singing Pete the Cat, or if you play to learn just like Mister Rogers said to, you are a perfect candidate for the CLEL Steering Committee. Be on a team on the forefront of early literacy in libraries!
Interested candidates may send their names, contact information, and a short biography (no longer than 150 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: any submissions longer than 150 words will not be considered. Please also include the sub-committee that interests you most! Don't want to serve but know someone who would be perfect for the job? Pass this information along! All submissions must be received by Tuesday, November 21.
The CLEL Membership will vote on candidates and selected parties will be notified by December 15.
Anyone selected will be expected to attend the first meeting of 2018, which will be on Friday, January 12, 2018 from 1-4pm at the CLiC Offices located at 7400 E Arapahoe Rd #75, Centennial, CO 80112.
Thank you for your interest and membership. We look forward to hearing from you!
