MALF Wants YOU on its Board of Directors!

The Minnesota Association of Library Friends is seeking five individuals to fill 2014 vacancies on its Board of Directors. Board members serve a two-year term with the option of a subsequent renewal, commit to attending (at minimum) quarterly meetings, and sit on two or more working committees:

  • By-Laws
  • Communications & Marketing
  • Finance
  • Membership
  • Nominating
  • Programming

BOD.jpgApplicants from a wide variety of backgrounds are needed. No prior experience working in a library setting or serving on a nonprofit Board is required. For details, email the MALF Nominating Committee at info@mnlibraryfriends.org or contact Barbi Byers at 651-235-0845.

The American Library Association, on its advocacy website “ILoveLibraries.org,” lists twenty ways that Friends can help their libraries. These range widely, from lobbying and fundraising to programming and shelving/inventory assistance. Of course, any single volunteer, no matter how multitalented and dedicated, would be hard pressed to pursue more than a few of these at once and all on their own. Fortunately, there’s an alternative: joining a Friends Board of Directors and pooling your time and resources with like-minded volunteers!
