Volunteer

The Taxonomy Division is always in need of volunteers, either for specific one-time tasks or for ongoing committee roles. People interested in volunteering should contact the division chair at chair@taxonomy.sla.org to discuss current opportunities and express interest.

As key Division players – committee chairs and committee members make a significant contribution to the health and activities of the Division. Committee terms are usually one year with possibility of renewal. Short term special tasks are also available. A description of each committee and its activities is available on the Committees page.

Each position will give an opportunity to:

  • Build planning and leadership skills
  • Make a contribution to the profession (paying back)
  • Gain management experience in Division activities
  • Acquire new ‘technical’ skills/tools
  • Raise your personal profile within SLA and the profession
  • Help shape the direction/vision of the Division
  • Interact with a group of dynamic committed taxonomy professionals
  • Provide a route to Division executive board membership

For more details about specific opportunities at any given time, division members may consult the Volunteer Opportunity page on our Member Wiki.
