Ad Hoc Committees


The Fund-Raising Committee was created in August of 2009 (minutes here). Karen Niemla is its chair, and other members are welcome to join. The Fund-Raising Committee intends to generate new revenue for ACRL-LA through soliciting donations in a variety of ways. At this time, we are looking into using PayPal donation on this website and perhaps on the upcoming Journal page also, and also offering goods and services, such as T-shirts, mugs, and new types of memberships.
