Forms & Policies

  • NJLA Professional Development Programming Guidelines (2018)

    Professional development is one of the most valuable components of NJLA membership. Every NJLA committee/section is strongly encouraged to offer one fee-based, in-person event, or one free event every two years. To create a sense of continuity, program planning should involve current leadership as well as incoming leaders and past leaders.

     Committee and Section Mini Grants

    NJLA committees and sections are eligible to apply for a $750 mini grant to fund projects. 

    Process for Special Election to NJLA Board

  • If the board chooses to hold a special election it should occur within 60 days. The Nominations & Elections Committee will notify the membership as soon as possible of the vacant position and invite nominations by online petition. Any interested NJLA member in good standing may apply to be a candidate at least 28 days before the election. A candidate must then be endorsed by 15 individual members, also in good standing, to be added to the ballot. Completed petitions must be received at least 14 days before the election.

  • Holidays and Observances Calendar

    This listing of holidays and observances is intended to represent New Jersey’s diverse population, yet not have so much information that it’s unwieldy. It needed to be inclusive, yet
    practical. As such, determinations needed to be made on whose holidays and observances were put on the calendar, and whose were not. 

  • NJLA Code of Conduct

    The New Jersey Library Association sponsors a variety of forums, meetings and professional development opportunities, including the annual spring Conference. The purpose of these events is to provide NJ librarians with opportunities to learn, connect and grow, which we believe to have a positive impact on the development and improvement of libraries throughout the state. 

  • NJLA Presenter Policy

    The New Jersey Library Association believes all employees of New Jersey Libraries have a vested interest in supporting their state association.   We also believe the benefit of presenting on a topic at an NJLA event in front of one’s peers, attending other programs at the event and taking advantage of networking opportunities provides considerable value and professional development. 

    NJLA Guidelines for Social Media Use
