A note from the ILF Executive Director:
In a recent survey asking members how the ILF could make improvements, some members asked, “How do I get more involved?” Within a week, we added a link so that members can learn more about involvement in the ILF.
Many members get involved in their district by serving on the district conference planning team. You don’t have to be an officer to do that. Just have energy, ideas for topics and a willingness to help see the one-day event through (held in spring). For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
As to divisions: The email addresses of division members are sent to division chairs periodically or by request. Divisions are responsible for sending the annual conference planning team ideas for topics and speakers. Divisions are welcome to hold an event (depending on date), open a list serv or have forums, use the free ILF conference phone line for group meetings or discussions, and find ways to support each other in their respective areas of professional growth.
Committees do quite a bit of work for the Federation. There are usually openings toward the end of each academic year as members complete their terms. Please see the volunteer form to identify areas where you would like to serve or be more involved in the future.
