ACRL Board Manual 2021-2022

Board Manual for the ACRL Board of Directors.

3.0 About the Board

Due to the cancelation of the in-person 2020 and 2021 ALA Annual Conferences, no photos were taken of the 2020-2021 or 2021-2022 Board of Directors. Individual photos can be found on the Meet the Board page.

The Board of Directors of ACRL is the governing body of the Association. It is the job of the Board of Directors to:

  • determine desirable outcomes
  • establish association policy
  • monitor ACRL’s programs, services and finances
  • guide the Association toward the future by making sure its core purpose, core values, and Plan for Excellence are being implemented.

ACRL’s Board of Directors carries out the mission of the association through the work of sections, committees, chapters, editorial boards, award juries, and discussion groups. Current rosters of ACRL committee members are on the ACRL Directory of Leadership.
