Are you a passionate individual wanting to use your skills to advance literacy? Know someone who is? ILA members are invited to recommend a colleague or nominate themselves for consideration to serve on the ILA Board of Directors.

The Nominating Committee seeks committed and capable candidates from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, experiences, professions, perspectives, and areas of expertise. Vital to the organization’s long-term success and financial health, nominees should be individuals who are dedicated to achieving ILA objectives, which include actively promoting ILA’s mission; ensuring effective organization planning; participating in all Board activities; and maintaining adequate resources.

Nominees with nonprofit experience, financial background, and literacy expertise will help round out the skill set that current members bring to the Board. Ideal candidates will have experience in leadership, strategic planning, and recruitment.

Board members are asked to serve a three-year term (2019–2022) and should plan to spend at least 50 hours a year on ILA activities, excluding travel. Meetings are conducted face to face and virtually. Each Board member is expected to serve on one or more committees or task forces.

Learn more about serving on ILA's Board of Directors, as well as how to nominate yourself or a colleague for one of the open positions, by downloading this guide. You can submit a nomination for yourself or a colleague until December 20.

Alina O’Donnell is the communications strategist at ILA and the editor of Literacy Daily.
