The Nominating Committee's charge is to choose, in accordance with the deadlines prescribed by the executive director of ACRL, a slate of nominees for the section positions vacant as of the close of the next ALA Conference.
The immediate past-chair of ULS is the chair of the Nominating Committee. Three additional ULS members serve on the Nominating Committee. Each member serves through one election cycle, which extends across two years.
Unlike other committees, the Nominating Committee begins its work in the spring, before ALA Annual, so the Nominating Committee is appointed earlier than most other ULS Committees. See the current committee roster.

The chair can decide to hold meetings virtually or face to face. Common practice is to conduct business outside the conference structure, usually virtually.
An ACRL staff liaison will contact the committee chair to confirm the list of vacancies and provide a document outlining procedures and the key deadlines. The committee chair then distributes the information provided by the ACRL staff liaison, schedules meetings of the group, and assures that deadlines are met.
