Officers

The Executive Board is made up of a president and vice president from each of the student chapters, as well as a treasurer, webmaster, archivist, and secretary that serve the organization as a whole. Positions are held for one year with elections held for most offices in the fall.

Interested in becoming an officer? First join ALA and/or SLA on Bullsync and then watch for announcements of upcoming elections (please note that joining SOLIS does not grant you membership in the national organizations). All members are eligible to run, even if it is your first semester in the program, and it is a great way to get to know other students. The positions of ALA vice president and SLA vice president are available as of June 2018. Elections will be held for the positions of secretary and webmaster in September of 2018. Please contact the SOLIS webmaster Anna at ambinder@mail.usf.edu if you are interested!
