PPRG Committee member

Job Description

The PPRG's interests cover the marketing and promotion of library services and engaging with our users. We are a small close-knit Special Interest Group (SIG) and we welcome membership from individuals from all library sectors who are interested in marketing their services.

Every year, we:

  1. Run the annual Marketing Excellence Awards competition to recognise and celebrate marketing successes across all library sectors.
  2. Organise a national conference and other seminars throughout the year to share best practice
  3. Provide networking opportunities with other library staff working in this area

If you would be interested in joining the committee, please get in touch. Depending on your own interests and specialisms, there are a wide number of roles in the committee you might be interested in helping with. These include social media, communication with members, conference organisation, award planning and judging and much more. We are a small committee and work really closely together on all of our activities so there will be lots of support and guidance available to you as a new member of the committee. The committee is geographically spread so our meetings normally take place via Skype, with at least one physical meeting in Birmingham every year. All travel costs are reimbursed for any physical meetings and you will receive a free place to our annual conference by being a committee member. To hear more about the committee, please contact the chair on chair.pprg@cilip.org.uk
