Nominate CAPAL/ACBAP’s Next Board of Directors

As a member of Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL/ACBAP) you are invited to participate in the governance of the association by sitting on the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors plays an important role in shaping the direction and policies of our young association by chairing committees, filling executive positions, liaising with other national organizations, and advocating on the diverse issues of concern to academic librarians across the country.

Our Board needs skillful, committed members who cross geographic, cultural, social, political and academic boundaries (to name a few) who will challenge our association to reflect the diverse interests and voices among Canadian academic librarians.
