Board of Directors

SLA is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and guided by input of the membership.

The Saskatchewan Library Association has several standing and ad hoc committees, as well as representatives on provincial and national organizations. If you are interested in getting involved please contact the office or the appropriate member of the Board of Director

Four positions on the board are elected each year to provide continuity and stability.
If you would like to be a member of the board, please complete the Nomination Form and submit it according the current year information.
