Have you considered serving on the Committee? This could be a rewarding experience, both personally and professionally.

What is involved?

As a Committee member, you would help to plan the programme of training and social events that the Branch runs each year – usually two one-day training courses, plus the summer Social and AGM.

How often does the committee meet?

The Committee meets two or three times a year. Recently, lunch-time meetings have been held in York, adding a social aspect to the proceedings.

How could it benefit me?

Professionally, committee membership may be advantageous for those seeking CILIP Certification or Chartership and for CPD generally.

Personal benefits include subsidised places on training courses for those hosting/organising events.

Do I need to be a member of the SLA?
