Get involved with HLA!

Are you looking for an opportunity to become more involved with your professional organization?  HLA has a few interesting and fun volunteer positions that need some attention but that don't require a commitment to the board.  If interested email HLA at Hawaii.library.association@gmail.com  Here are the jobs:

Facebook Editor:  Currently there are two contributing editors but HLA is looking for an overall editor that can be more activity involved with our Facebook page.

Scholarships:  HLA began a scholarship program to offer two scholarships per year and are looking for an HLA member to spearhead this responsibility.

Merchandise:  HLA has t-shirts and polo shirts are sale.  A member is needed who can do a bit of marketing and advertising of these few items both at the conference, on the Facebook page and website.  Also take the responsibility to and who can storage and maintain an inventory.
