Hello from the RIPS Nominations Committee!

We recently sent out an email about nominating someone (including yourself) for a position on the RIPS-SIS Board (details below). Here are 5 reasons to seek a position on the board:

  1. Gain a new perspective by working with people in a different setting.
  2. Not just people from a different setting, but also a fun and hardworking group (
  3. Practice your leadership skills, such as communication, problem-solving, time management, decision making, and others.
  4. Give back to a community that offers many helpful resources, including the National Research Teach-in Instructional Resources Kit, and many others.
  5. Plus lots of other general benefits, like providing new networking opportunities, building on your resume, developing your personal interests, etc.

Nominations for Vice-Chairperson/Chairperson-Elect and a Member-at-Large position can be sent to Robin Schard,, by Monday, January 25, 2016. Self-nominations are welcome.

After a slate of candidates is determined (early February), the election will take place in March via the AALL online balloting platform. Results will be shared with RIPS-SIS members by the end of March.

If you have any questions about the nominations and election process, please feel free to contact either of the Nominations Committee Co-Chairs: Laura McKinnon ( or Robin Schard (
