WiLS Cooperative Purchasing Advisory Committee Seeks New Members
WiLS is recruiting participants for the Cooperative Purchasing Advisory Committee (CooPAC) to provide input into the current state of and future developments for its cooperative purchasing service. As a member-guided organization, WiLS deeply values your input and your time. It welcomes any volunteers but particularly those from its K12, public, and special libraries.
WiLS is currently reconfiguring this Committee so that there are few or no meetings so work can be completed on a schedule determined by the participant. Please let WiLS know at email@example.com if you are interested in participating or if you have any questions.
