Plug Yourself In!
SILA, like all volunteer organizations, relies on its members to get involved. One of the best and fastest ways is to join a SILA committee. SILA needs volunteers! We invite you to serve on a committee that matches your interests and expertise.
The time requirement is minimal, and the benefits are enormous. Committees are responsible for the different activities within the SILA organization. Committees help move SILA forward and you’ll gain a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment, plus make valuable connections with your colleagues when you serve in this capacity.
Each committee is led by a SILA Board member (liaison). Committee members communicate via email and conference calls. There may also be a committee meeting at the National Education Conference. Committees are open to individuals who hold a SILA membership in good standing.
To get involved and join a committee, please complete the Committee Sign Up Form.
Education is a core value of SILA. This group concentrates on the expansion and improvement of SILA’s Designation Program; carefully reviewing the content and making appropriate recommendations.
