Committee member

Job Description

Purpose of role: Offer support, encouragement and engagement with creating and running events alongside other committee members. We welcome members of CILIP and those non-members from the wider academic and research library community.

The Committee for the ARLG Southern Region would like to welcome people to serve on the committee to help develop and organise local events.

Our remit is to:

  • Organise an annual event aimed specifically at Library Assistants (very popular in the past as it fills a niche training gap).
  • Host guest speakers (recent events have included Andy Priestner and Andrew Walsh).
  • Deliver themed events. Previous topics have included social media and information literacy.(These often draw on the expertise of our colleagues in the region allowing them presentation opportunities and us to tailor the events to our own local needs.)

We are a friendly group who meet online or across the region depending on the membership. We currently have representation from Southampton and Winchester and welcome members living / working in any part of the Southern region (Hampshire, Dorset and West Sussex). Reasonable travel expenses to attend meetings or lead events will be reimbursed.

If you would like to know more please email Mike Jones (ARLG Southern Chair) via to find out more about the role and express an interest in joining the committee.
