Application to Serve on SPLAT
Idaho libraries are the nexus of global information, innovative services and community, enabling us to sustain our history, empower our present, and create our future.

One statewide strategy from the 2020 Vision process was: "Create a Special Projects Library Action Team (SPLAT) to act in the 'crow's nest' capacity, searching for innovation, proposing and leading experiments and pilot projects, discovering new opportunities."

From this initiative the Idaho library community has been the beneficiary of the Gizmo Garage and SPLAT 101, as well as many other innovative services. This group is comprised of individuals from the Idaho library community who serve a three-year term. During the next six months there will be up to 5 vacancies to fill on the Idaho Commission for Libraries' SPLAT.

SPLAT members pledge to:
* build their own expertise in innovative practices;
* share their expertise and experiences with their colleagues in the Idaho library community;
* use their expertise with library customers in their community on a regular basis; and
* work to make the 2020 Vision a reality in Idaho.

If you are interested in serving a three-year term on this statewide committee, please complete the following survey and submit by November 30, 2017. All applicants will be notified by December 15, 2017 as to the status of their application. Thank you for considering this service opportunity.
