The School Library Association is managed by a Board, elected by SLA members for a period of three years. There are currently two sub-committees, for Publications and Training.
The SLA's Board is the strategic planning body for the Association, and the input of new board members, bringing fresh ideas and approaches, is essential.
The nomination period for new members of the Board, to serve from June 2015 to June 2018, will be announced in the winter edition of The School Librarian. Voting will take place online in early 2015.
