Join ALA’s GameRT

Volunteer for the GameRT Executive Board

The GameRT Executive Board consists of a President trio (Elect, Current, Past), Secretary, Treasurer, Council member, and six Members-at-Large. Presidents serve for three years (one year each as President-Elect, President, and Past President). The Treasurer, Secretary and Members-at-Large serve for two years. You must be a member of GameRT to be on the Board.

You can nominate yourself for a Board spot in the fall. Nominations close on December and then elections happen as part of ALA’s elections in March. Login here to complete a Division and Roundtable Candidate Biographical Form (when available).

Committee Work

You must be a member of GameRT and able to make a one year commitment to be on a committee. Most committee rosters change over after ALA Annual in June. Committees generally meet once a month and work on projects year-round. Read the full descriptions of GameRT committees to see which committee best aligns with your interests.

If you are a GameRT member, you can volunteer for committee work via this AirTable form. Most committee rosters are finalized in July/August. Applications for the upcoming year are reviewed in May/June. Outside of the review period, applications are checked once per month. If you fill out the application after committees are finalized in July/August, you may be able to help with intermittent projects, but would be considered for committee membership for the following year.

  • International Games Month Committee (roster changes in January)

Anyone can submit articles for consideration to the blog, you can volunteer as a mentor for the GameRT RPG Guild, you can be a guest on GameRT Twitch programs, you can present webinars, etc. Fill our this Airtable form to indicate your interests!
