ALA Puts Out Request for Applications to New Policy Corps

ALA is asking for applications to join its new ALA Policy Corps, which was launched by current president Jim Neal. This group of 10–12 members will aim to “include developing policy experts available to ALA and the ALA Washington Office, creating longevity in expertise and engagement in early to mid-career library and information professionals, and positively impacting national public policy in areas key to ALA’s strategic goals,” according to the press release. Library advocates from all types of institutions who meet a list of qualifications—ALA members with at least 5 years of library experience and who are willing to commit to 5 years of participation, among other things—are encouraged to apply by Nov. 3, 2017.

For more information, read the press release.
