Interested in Being Involved?

NJLA Committees and Subcommittees provide amazing opportunities for networking and skill-building through Conference, Member Services and Professional Development. They advise and advocate for NJ libraries through Public Policy and Intellectual Freedom and raise awareness through Public Relations. They do critical work for the operations of the organization such as Finance, Elections and Fundraising. Committee assignments are for two years appointed by the NJLA President. There are limited opportunities for all committees and subcommittees, so make your choices for the 2016-2017 term as soon as possible! Please submit this form to make your committee choice selections. The form will close on May 27, 2016. Committee appointments will be finalized by June 1, 2016, and notifications sent via email.

See You Next Year!

Each and every year, NJLA and NJASL invites librarians, all types of library workers, and supporters and vendors to participate in engaging discussion, thoughtful workshops and presentations, networking and professional development during this three-day conference. On this website, you'll find information for professional and paraprofessional staff, Board of Trustee members, Friends volunteers, and other Conference participants.

Code of Conduct for NJLA Conference

2016 logo.pngThe New Jersey Library Association sponsors a variety of forums, meetings and professional development opportunities, including the annual spring Conference. The purpose of these events is to provide NJ librarians with opportunities to learn, connect and grow, which we believe to have a positive impact on the development and improvement of libraries throughout the state.

NJLA does not tolerate harassment of members, attendees, staff, venue workers, speakers or other participants at any meetings or events sponsored by the organization. Speakers are asked to frame discussion as openly and inclusively as possible and to be aware of how language or images may be perceived by others. Participants may - and do - exercise their option to leave a session or a conversation. As a statewide professional development association for librarians and library workers in New Jersey, the events sponsored by NJLA are an extension of work and no person should work under threat of harassment.

Read the complete NJLA Code of Conduct, guidelines to report a problem or incident during or following the 2016 NJLA Conference, and other Atlantic City contact information.
