Kelsey (librarybonanza) | 2 comments Oh, how I wish I lived in Colorado! But it may be a reality in the future and THEN I'll apply to be on the committee.

Melody | 33 comments You do not have to live in Colorado to be a member of the committee! It's a great state to visit if you are able to come to the Short List meeting on December 10th. We can be flexible about the April orientation meeting and host you virtually.

While CLEL is regional organization, the Bell Award is a national award and state residency is not a requirement for either.
