I am very interested in the work of the ACIG group, and have enjoyed many programs you’ve put together over the years. I would really like to help out with the group, but at this time I am unable to commit to attending all conferences. I may not even be able to commit to attending one conference per year. Is there any opportunity for someone like me to get involved and contribute? Is there any chance ACIG may be interested in beefing up their online community and moving away from being solely in-person conference focused? I realized ACIG is hardly alone within ALCTS or ALA with the four conference attendance requirement, but progress has to start somewhere.
Thanks for considering,

The LITA/ALCTS Authority Control Interest Group has three Advisory Board positions up for election.
Terms are two years and begin following ALA Annual 2016. Officers must be able to commit to attending both ALA Midwinter and ALA Annual during their terms.
Elections will be held during the Authority Control Interest Group business meeting on Sunday, June 26th starting at 3:00 in the Hyatt Regency Orlando, Florida Ballroom C.
Anyone interested in standing for election to one of these positions is invited to get in touch with Tatyana Chubaryan ([log in to unmask] ) and/or Jodi L. Spillane ([log in to unmask]) prior to ALA if you have any questions or wish to announce your intent to run in advance. Anyone can be added to the ballot at the meeting itself also.
