Are you ready for a leadership role in NCLCA?! It’s time to elect new officers to the Executive Board of Directors!

We have 4 exciting opportunities on the Executive Board for 2021-22. Our organization thrives based on the dynamic interactions of our membership and our dedicated Executive Board. You can help NCLCA move forward with our mission to provide support and best practices in the field of learning center administration. The four seats open on the 2021-22 board include:

    • Professional Development (2 year term)
    • Recording Secretary (2 year term)
    • Publications Officer  (2 year term)

Vice President

The Vice President’s primary responsibility is to serve as the conference chairperson for the upcoming year. The VP elected this year will be planning the 2022 Annual Conference in Reston, Virginia. This position requires a considerable time commitment, great organizational and communications skills, and an ability to reach out to members to form a strong, collaborative conference committee. Prior experience with event planning is useful. It is strongly suggested that nominees have held a prior seat on the NCLCA Executive Board, as historical and operational knowledge of our organization is key to planning a successful conference.
