Would you like to volunteer with us? Canberra Library Tribe is an informal friendly group for GLAMR people in Canberra and surrounds. We were established in 2013 and represent a broad range of information management sectors. We have had preconference meetups, career talks, a teddy bears’ picnic, bookshop scavenger hunts, performed a Rapunzel play, a mentorship program and a “finance for GLAMR people” session. We don’t require membership and most of our events are free or run on a cost-recovery basis.
We have lots of future event ideas including craft meetups, green library activities, playground catch-ups and more.
Canberra Library Tribe is currently looking for new Committee Members to join our team. These are volunteer positions, but you will develop fantastic skills in working as part of a team, organising events and project management. Plus we are super fun! We currently have 5 team members on the committee and would love to have 2 or 3 more people. We usually have 3 events per year so it is not a big time commitment but the role does involve social media scheduling on a rostered basis.
Position description, Committee Member
This position description applies to each member of the Canberra Library Tribe committee.
- Helping to plan events each year – depending on your schedule and subject expertise/interest, you can be more involved with a particular event than other events;
- Schedule, post and reply on our twitter and facebook presences (roster is organised on a monthly basis, so each person normally does one month every 6 months, aiming for 1-4 link shares per week);
- Be contactable via email (to discuss event planning, projects, priorities etc.) and attend coffee/chocolate committee meetings once a quarter;
- Assist in writing blog posts (ad hoc).
The interested person should:
- Have an active interest in the Canberra/surrounds GLAMR scene;
- Like running innovative events for the sector; and
- Be enjoyable to work with and to be part of our team!
Average time demand per month: 3 hours or less (email communication), more for event planning, more for social media (if on the roster for that month).
Please send your expressions of interest to canberralibrary tribe [at] gmail [dot] com by COB 4 September 2015. If you have any questions, please email us at the same address. There’s no word limit for the EOI, just tell us why you’d like to be involved and include a resume (if possible).
