Beta Phi Mu National Honor Society looking for volunteers

The Beta Phi Mu National Honor Society is looking for Volunteers. From their newsletter:

1) One or two people to help with the Nominating Committee. Working with the BPM Past President, members of this committee help identify potential candidates for BPM Board and Officer positions and help with contacting potential candidates and information gathering.

2) Persons willing to run for the BPM Board or for an officer position -- nominations and self-nominations are welcome! For the coming election, we will need to elect a new Vice President/President Elect, a Treasurer, and an At-Large Director (Board member). We will also need to elect two Directors (Board members) at the Beta Phi Mu Business Meeting and Member Reception at ALA Annual in Chicago this summer. For more information about these positions, please see the BPM By-Laws.

3) We may also have a need for volunteers for our Scholarship Committee and the Editorial Board for our Scholars Series.

If you have any questions, or if you are interested in any of these positions, please contact us here at Beta Phi Mu Headquarters. We will answer any questions you may have, and/or direct you to a committee chair, as appropriate.
