Nominations for ILAGO Needed


The Information Literacy Advisory Group of Oregon (ILAGO) is currently
soliciting nominations for ILAGO's First Board. Nominations are for the
2010-2011 year, and positions will begin in September 2010. 

The Information Literacy Advisory Group of Oregon is a multidisciplinary
group of Information Literacy educators in Oregon. We offer support and
a forum for Oregon colleagues to participate in conversation about
Information Literacy standards and practices at our colleges and
universities. ILAGO organizes an annual Oregon Information Literacy
Summit, which provides an opportunity for Oregon writing, library, and
other faculty to come together to discuss IL instruction and practices
at our institutions. Our ongoing conversation considers cooperative
initiatives likely to influence the formation of IL standards in Oregon
general education across the state. ILAGO has been active defining
lower-division IL and sharing current instruction practices.
Participants include representatives from community colleges and
four-year institutions in multiple disciplines.  For more information,
read:   http://ilago.wordpress.com/ <http://ilago.wordpress.com/> 


Please consider nominating yourself or other persons (with their express
permission) for a position on the ILAGO Board. The ILAGO Structure team
(the 2008 IL Summit committee tasked with formalizing a structure for
the Summit group) will collect nominations. 

Send nominations by June 8 to Michele Burke at
michele.burke at chemeketa.edu <mailto:michele.burke at chemeketa.edu>  . We
will hold elections in mid-June.  You must be subscribed to the ILAGO
listserv in order to vote (for information on subscribing to the ILAGO
list, visit http://lists.chemeketa.edu/mailman/listinfo/ilago

Position descriptions: 

Chair facilitates discussion of IL articulation in Oregon and works
closely with articulation groups in other disciplines, attending
meetings as possible (e.g., attends OWEAC meetings). The Chair works
with partner groups such as the Library Instruction Round Table. It is
preferable the Chair position be held by a faculty person from
disciplines that alternate from year to year.  The Past Chair is also
the chair of the current IL Summit planning committee.

Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect assumes the office of Chair after one year as
Vice Chair. The vice-chair assists the Chair; becomes familiar with the
on-going conversation around IL in Oregon; facilitates the Oregon IL
conversation and IL articulation among ILAGO members; attends meetings
and chairs meetings in the absence of the Chair. 

Treasurer has approval authority for all expenditures below $250.00. The
treasurer obtains the signature of the Chair for expenditures above
$250.00 (two signatures are necessary for expenditures above $250.00);
submits bills and receipts to ILAGO Chair; maintains records of all
expenditures and profits for the organization. The primary project for

Communications Officer records minutes of the ILAGO meeting and IL
Summit and communicates with membership via the ILAGO website, listserv,
email, by phone, and face to face; assures ILAGO members receive copies
of meeting minutes and announcements in a timely manner;
promotes/publicizes the IL Summit. The Communications officer tracks
membership and delivers an annual call for membership in order to
maintain an updated voting list. 


Technology Officer maintains listserv and website, including gathering
conference materials and making content from conference sessions
accessible after the event; keeps website updated with current
information and links to resources; ties together the IL Summit web
presence and the ILAGO web presence.


Board Members-at-Large represent the interests of the general
membership. Board Members-at-Large are free from the constraints of the
working details of the organization, but may become assisting personnel
for officers in the organization by conducting projects and accepting
other duties as needed.  It is preferable that the Members-at-Large be
from different disciplines.  


Joining the ILAGO Board is a great way to network with information
literacy instructors from around the State. Board positions are open to
ILAGO members from Oregon. We hope you will consider participating in
this dynamic organization. 

Please call 503.365-4711 or email michele.burke at chemeketa.edu if you
have questions or want more detail about the ILAGO Board and nominations
