ChLA Newsletter Co-Editor Search
The ChLA Newsletter is a semiannual publication for the members of the Children’s Literature Association. It reports information pertinent to the activities of ChLA, such as ChLA election results and awards, ChLA Board actions, conference information, MLA sessions on children’s literature, and so forth. The Newsletter editor(s) are appointed by the ChLA President, with approval of the ChLA Executive Board, for a 3 year term, renewable with Board approval.
Currently, two editors work together to share the following responsibilities: coordinating with the ChLA Administrator, ChLA President, committee chairs and others to collect information to go into the Newsletter in a timely manner; soliciting and/or writing and editing items that will be published in the newsletter; putting items into standard newsletter format (layout); sending the final version of the newsletter and sending a PDF to the ChLA Administrator for posting to the ChLA website; and reporting to the ChLA Board on newsletter actions taken.
The current newsletter editors’ terms expire in June of 2011; thus, the Association is soliciting ChLA members who would like to serve in this capacity. The new editor(s) will be responsible for producing the Fall 2011 issue. Interested parties should send a letter of interest to the ChLA Board identifying qualifications for the position by January 15, 2011. Letters to the Board may be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to ChLA office.
