This standing Committee is required for the ongoing functioning of the association. The Membership Committee:
The Committee Chair or Co-Chairs are appointed by the President and may serve concurrent terms of office. In addition to the Chair, committee members (3-5 members) include the NDLA Treasurer as an advisory member and at least one person in their first five years of membership.
The Membership Committee has recently merged with the New Members Committee! The merge was approved at the August 2023 Executive Board meeting. The committee chairs of Membership and New Members felt that the interests of the two committees aligned, and that a combined group would help maintain a more active committee. The merge also helped address some confusion about the purpose and make-up of the New Members Committee after its transition from Roundtable to Committee.
See you all at the upcoming conference in Fargo!
Join us for monthly Happy Lunches!
These virtual “happy hours” will take place at noon on the 2nd Friday of each month, beginning in March 2023.
Co-hosted by the Membership Committee and other NDLA committees, sections, and Executive Board positions, these lunches are a great way to learn about the work of the association and meet members from across the state. Drop in, stay as long as you like—all are welcome!
Watch the NDLA listserv for the Zoom link or reach out to the Membership co-chairs.
Upcoming Happy Lunch dates:
If you have suggestions for discussion topics or would like your committee or section to co-host, let us know! Send an email to Amanda Walch, Membership co-chair.
