Call for 2019-2020 Committee Members

Are you interested in taking a leadership role in FLA?  Take the first step and join a committee.  There are 15 very active committees, all looking for eager participants.  FLA is based on a strong foundation of volunteers and member support.  We strive to provide you with opportunities to collaborate and create, not only for your personal career, but for the library field. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, April 30th.  Members currently serving on a committee need to check if your term is ending this year.  Please find your committee's roster on the link below.  If you would like to continue to participate, you will need to apply as well.

PLEASE NOTE!
FLA is aware of and closely monitoring recently filed bills (HB855 and SB1454) both referencing Instructional Materials. Both bills would be harmful to school libraries and school media centers. At this point, FLA does not have an official position, but we will support the Florida Association of Media Educators (FAME) in their opposition to these bills.
As more information becomes available, we will share that through our communications channels as needed. 
At this time, there is no FLA Call to Action. Should that change, we will call on FLA members to assist. 
Thank You Honor Roll Donors: 2018, 2019
