Minnesota Statute 134.351 requires a seven member SELS Advisory Committee with members elected from and representing the various types of libraries: academic, public, school and special. The SELS Advisory Committee meets every other month and appoints working groups as needed to provide advice about multitype programs and services to the SELCO Executive Director and the SELCO/SELS Board of Directors. According to SELS Bylaws, members are elected to three-year terms beginning in January of the first year and ending in December of the third year. Members may serve for no more than three consecutive terms. The committee meets the first Tuesday of the month in January, March, May, July, September, and November.
